Associated Conditions of Chancroid

About associated conditions: Associated conditions are those which appear statistically related, but do not have a clear cause or effect relationship. Whereas the complications are caused by Chancroid, and underlying causes may be causes of Chancroid, the following list shows associated conditions that simply appear with higher frequency in people who have Chancroid. In some cases, there may be overlap between this list and risk factors for Chancroid. People with Chancroid may be more likely to get a condition on the list of associated conditions, or the reverse may be true, or both. Whether they are causes of, caused by, or simply coincidentally related to Chancroid is not always clear. For general information, see Associated Condition Misdiagnosis.
