1.  Antenatal screening for syphilis. 
PMCID: PMC1045895  PMID: 7214124
3.  Cryotherapy versus electrocautery in the treatment of genital warts. 
Forty-two male patients with ano-genital warts were randomly allocated to a single-blind study of cryotherapy versus electrocautery. There was no significant difference in the success rates of these two forms of treatment in patients followed for three months. Cryotherapy was qualitatively much more acceptable to the patients than electrocautery. It seems particularly suited to patients with widely scattered warts who are unable to attend for regular treatment.

4.  Sclerosing granuloma inguinale. 
A 21-year-old European male patient presented with a penile sore of two months' duration. Donovan bodies were detected in a tissue smear from the lesion, which healed after treatment with co-trimoxazole. Sclerosing granuloma inguinale was diagnosed.

5.  Osteitis in early syphilis: a case report 
Osteitis of the tibia was diagnosed in a patient presenting with secondary syphilis. The course of the illness indicates that pain in bones in secondary syphilis may be the first symptom of an otherwise inapparent osteitis.

8.  An atypical case of secondary syphilis. 
A 27-year-old man with secondary syphilis had unusual cutaneous lesions of the ear and scalp.
PMCID: PMC1045862  PMID: 7470832
9.  Persistence of miconazole in vaginal secretions after single applications. Implications for the treatment of vaginal candidosis. 
In vaginal secretions from 16 healthy women aged between 20 and 27 years miconazole persisted in biodetectable concentrations for at least 48 hours after insertion of a single miconazole vaginal pessary. This finding casts doubt on cure rates in vaginal candidosis determined soon after the end of treatment and suggests that current treatment courses with imidazole antifungal agents may be longer than their nominal three or five days.

14.  Podophyllin 10% and 25% in the treatment of ano-genital warts. A comparative double-blind study. 
One hundred and forty male patients with ano-genital warts were randomly allocated to a double-blind study of 10% and 25% podophyllin in tincture of benzoin compound. One hundred and nine patients attended for a three-month period of surveillance. Only 24 (22%) patients were free of warts after having podophyllin treatment alone, 12 each after treatment with 10% and 25% podophyllin. There was no significant difference in the number of applications needed with each treatment. Neither hypersensitivity nor chemical ulceration occurred.

15.  Simple method for detecting penicillinase-producing Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Staphylococcus aureus. 
A filter paper acidometric test, using bromocresol purple as pH indicator, for detecting penicillinase-producing Neisseria gonorrhoeae (PPNG) and Staphylococcus aureus gave complete agreement with the chromogenic cephalosporin and rapid iodometric methods when performed on 300 strains of gonococci and 70 strains of Staph aureus. The test is cheap and simple and may be used to screen for penicillinase-producing strains of N gonorrhoeae and Staph aureus.

16.  Evaluation of a culture slide in the diagnosis of vaginal candidosis. 
The Till-U-Test Candida Dermatophyte (TUT CD) culture slide, produced for the diagnosis of yeast and dermatophyte infections, was compared with microscopy and formal laboratory culture in the diagnosis of vaginal candidosis. Candida albicans grew readily on the medium and reliable results were obtained within a mean of three days' incubation at room temperature. Agreement with laboratory culture was 91 . 4%; 29% of cases would have been missed by microscopy alone. The TUT CD is a useful device, therefore, in the investigation of vaginitis.

17.  In-vitro antigonococcal activity of rosoxacin (WIN 35213). 
The in-vitro activity of rosoxacin against 173 isolates of Neisseria gonorrhoeae, including 17 beta-lactamase-producers, was tested by an agar dilution method. Of the isolates, 167 (including 16 of the beta-lactamase-producers) were inhibited by 0 . 06 mg/l of rosoxacin. The remaining six isolates, one of which produced beta-lactamase and the others were moderately resistant to penicillin, were inhibited by 0 . 12-0 25 mg/l of the compound. There was little correlation between the minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of rosoxacin and penicillin, except for isolates with MICs of penicillin of 0 . 06-1 mg/l, for which correlation was good.

20.  Penicillinase-producing Neisseria gonorrhoeae isolated in Surabaya. 
Although penicillinase-producing strains of Neisseria gonorrhoeae (PPNG) were discovered in 1976 in neighbouring countries, not until 1980 were such strains isolated and identified in Indonesia. In that year PPNG were detected in three male patients with gonococcal urethritis in Surabaya. The minimum inhibitory concentration of penicillin G for all three strains was 12 . 5 microgram/ml.

24.  Subacute Wernicke's encephalopathy due to gastric syphilis 
In a patient who presented with subacute Wernicke's encephalopathy the underlying gastric lesion was found to be due to syphilis.
