We report the first case of chancroid seen at our clinic in 14 years. It was diagnosed by nuclear acid amplification test in a male patient returning from Madagascar. Although the disease is considered on the verge of disappearance even in tropical countries, its real potential for reemergence – due to new strains of Haemophilus ducreyi, underreporting and a lack of widespread use of molecular testing – could be underestimated. © 2016, © The Author(s) 2016.
