Extragenital skin lesions can occur by transmission from concurrent genital lesions via fingers or other nonsexual contact.

Rarely cases have been reported in children with history of mastoiditis external ear discharges or with polypoid mass in the middle ear that on biopsy showed the features of granuloma inguinale.

These cases indicate that granuloma inguinale can be transmitted during vaginal delivery. 

Careful cleansing of neonates born to infected mothers is recommended.

Diagnosis requires the careful collection, staining and examination of smears or biopsies of lesions for demonstration of the pathognomonic Donovan bodies (Calymmatobacterium granulomatis) within histiocytes.
