Differential Diagnosis Inflammatory Bowel Disease. It is assumed that each stage of LGV has a different clinical and histopathological morphology.

The lesion in the infralabial area was removed in toto and the defect closed by single skin sutures. After a detailed analysis of all the bibliographic sources, we lincogranuloma entirely exclude the hypothesis that histopathological findings in LGV-patients can also evolve, in concert with the clinicopathologic findings. An initial consideration venfreo skin cancer is not unreasonable in patients such as those discussed above, since clinical findings can be quite similar and histopathology is not always conclusive.

We do not exclude the possibility that an ulcerating balanitis could be generated within the context of seropositive, active rheumatoid arthritis, which lonfogranuloma frequently able to initiate nonspecific skin and mucosal ulcerations. At the acute stage case 1neutrophilic infiltrates prevail; at the subacute stage, histiocytes macrophages most likely predominate case 2whereas at the chronic stage, granulomatous infiltrates probably prevail.


Pathological examination of rectal biopsies showed granulation tissue, increase in polymorphonuclear leucocytes, fibrin exudate associated with fibrosis and stromal congestion.
