The WHO's ICD10 version 2006, currently lists this as "Granuloma Inguinale" with "Donovanosis" as lesser alternative name. Generally such WHO preference takes priority (see Wikipedia:WikiProject Drugs/General/Naming of drug pages re use of International Nonproprietary Names for drugs). So should this page be moved ? If not then the article could do with some specifically linked footnote citations to current worldwide (vs perhaps just US) state of consensus naming for this condition.
