Recently, four Haemophilus ducreyi isolates were obtained from the lower limbs of children suggesting that Haemophilus ducreyi may function as a causative agent of chronic skin ulcers in tropical regions (Ussher et al., 2007). In 2005, White et al. described CII strains based on variations detected in DNA sequences and protein expression of several virulence determinants including DsrA and the Necessary for Collagen Adhesion protein (NcaA).
