1.  Treatment of uncomplicated gonorrhoea in women with talampicillin in a single oral 1.5 g dose. 
Four hundred and sixty women with uncomplicated gonorrhea were treated with a single oral dose of 1.5 g talampicillin. The success rate among those who attended for at least one follow-up examination after treatment was 99.14%. The antibiotic was well tolerated and no side effects were reported. Talampicillin given under supervision has proved to be the most effective and safest treatment in this area. A smaller dosage of talampicillin than ampicillin is required, the drug is better tolerated by the patient, and the time of nursing staff is saved.

2.  Thiamphenicol in the treatment of chancroid in men. 
Thiamphenicol was used to treat 547 men with chancroid. An oral dose of 2.5g was given on the first day and a further dose of 1.25g a week later if the lesions had not healed. Eighty-seven (15.9%) patients defaulted from follow up and 23 (4.2%) had positive serological test results for syphilis. Of the remaining 437 patients, 27 (6.2%) failed to respond to treatment, 258 (59%) were cured after the single dose, and 152 (34.8%) required a second dose. The overall cure rate was 93.8%.

8.  Traumatic ulceration of the cervix. Case report. 
A 19-year-old women with persistent biological false-positive reactions to serological tests for syphilis developed multiple elliptical ulcers of the cervix from the use of a vaginal vibrator. This adds one more aetiological agent to the differential diagnosis of cervical ulceration.

11.  Aseptic meningitis and herpes simplex proctitis. A case report. 
A male homosexual patient developed an aseptic meningitis during the course of acute ano-proctitis due to herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2). Aseptic meningitis (sometimes proved to be due to HSV-2) has been associated with genital but not with anal herpes. This sexually transmissible virus should be considered when patients with aseptic meningitis are investigated.

16.  Ulcerative vulvitis in Reiter's syndrome. A case report. 
In a case of acute Reiter's syndrome with severe vulvitis the diagnosis was based on the presence of a vaginal discharge and dysuria, arthritis, conjunctivitis, buccal ulceration, keratodermia blenorrhagica, and HLA B27 tissue-typing antigen. The vulval lesions were similar in appearance to those of circinate vulvitis. The acute histological change were confined to shallow ulceration with an inflammatory infiltration of the subjacent dermis. Coincidential lichen sclerosus et atrophicus was present, which could have been masked by the acute lesions.

20.  Strongyloidiasis: is it transmitted from husband to wife? 
The possible transmission of Strongyloides stercoralis from men who had been infected for many years to their wives was investigated. None of the 24 wives was infected, as indicated by the absence of anti-Strongyloides antibodies in their serum. Thus, the risk of transmission from husband to wife seems small, although the likelihood among homosexuals is greater.

21.  Guillain-Barré syndrome associated with hepatitis A in a male homosexual 
A 48-year-old male homosexual developed the Guillain-Barré syndrome in association with acute hepatitis. The hepatitis A virus was almost certainly transmitted sexually. Since the incidence of viral hepatitis is high in active male homosexuals, they are particularly at risk of developing such complications.

22.  Treatment of trichomoniasis with metronidazole rectal suppositories 
Since a single dose of metronidazole in suppository form is very effective in the prevention of postoperative Gram-negative anaerobic infections, 84 patients with vaginal trichomoniasis were treated with metronidazole suppositories (two 1-g suppositories in a single dose). The cure rate in this series was 94%.

23.  Vaginal bleeding in granuloma inguinale. Case reports. 
Since bleeding from the female genitourinary tract is not a common symptom in granuloma inguinale two patients presenting with profuse and intermittent vaginal bleeding were initially admitted as gynaecological or obstetric emergencies. In both cases, the cause was ultimately found to be granuloma inguinale.

24.  Rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and Reiter's syndrome occurring simultaneously: Case report 
Features of rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis and Reiter's disease occurred simultaneously in the same patient. This is a rare finding and appears to be the first published report of such a case.

25.  Therapeutic abortion and Chlamydia trachomatis infection. 
Chlamydia trachomatis was isolated from the cervix of 30 of 218 (13.8%) women admitted for legal termination of pregnancy. During the first two weeks after the abortion seven of the 30 (23.3%) patients developed pelvic inflammatory disease. Four of these had serological evidence of recent active chlamydial infection. Thus, routine examination of patients for genital chlamydial infection before termination of pregnancy is recommended.
