Sexually transmitted diseases are clinical syndromes caused by diverse pathogens. This paper reviews chancroid, a genital and anogenital ulcerative STD. There have been estimates of an incidence of 6 to 7 million cases worldwide, though these numbers have been declining since 1995. Chancroid has generated a renewed interest because of its capacity to amplify the transmission of HIV. At 160 years from its original description there are new diagnostic methods, prevention and treatment that warrant constant update.

Key words: Haemophilus ducreyi, chanroid, soft chancre, Ducrey disease, genital ulcer, sexually transmitted disease.
