Answer

Painful, usually unilateral, regional lymphadenopathy occurs in an approximately 50% of patients and is more common in men. Of patients with lymphadenitis, 25% may have progression to a suppurative bubo, which may rupture spontaneously and ulcerate. If untreated, chronic draining sinuses may follow.
