Haemophilus ducreyi

Hello, I'm H. ducreyi.
I'm a small, gram negative rod.
I am mostly found in developing countries.

I cause chancroid, a disease which is sexually transmitted.
It has a soft chancre made of genital ulcers
Then I spread to your inguinal (groin) lymph nodes and enlarge them.
Sometimes they form abscesses.
