2.  Isolation of Neisseria lactamica from the female genital tract. A case report. 
Neisseria lactamica was isolated from the genital tract of a young patient with a persistent vaginal discharge. Although infection with N lactamica occurs very rarely, the importance of complete biochemical identification of neisseriae is emphasised in view of the serious social and medicolegal consequences which could result from a misdiagnosis of gonorrhoea.

3.  Further evidence of the efficacy of co-trimoxazole in granuloma venereum. 
One hundred and sixteen patients with granuloma venereum were treated with cotrimoxazole two tablets twice daily. All the patients responded; most of them required treatment for 10-15 days. Only two patients had recurrences, which were probably due to reinfections. No side effects of the drug occurred. Co-trimoxazole is considered to be the treatment of choice for granuloma venereum because of its high efficacy, few side effects, easy administration, and absence of any risk of masking concomitant syphilis.

6.  Carcinoma of the bladder presenting as gonococcal cystitis. 
A patient with gonococcal infection presented with frank haematuria. On subsequent investigation a transitional cell carcinoma was found. Because the haematuria resolved rapidly after treatment with ampicillin no sinister cause for the bleeding was suspected. Since gonorrhoea is rarely associated with gross haematuria, when it does occur a thorough investigation should be undertaken.

7.  Assessment of the Till-U-Test GC slide. 
The Till-U-Test (TUT) GC slide, a simple cultural procedure for Neisseria gonorrhoeae, was compared with a standard procedure using modified Thayer-Martin medium for laboratory confirmation of gonorrhoea in 144 patients. The TUT proved to be slightly more sensitive than the standard procedure. In 92.6% of all patients the results agreed, and in cases with positive results to Gram stain N gonorrhoeae was isolated in 93.6% with the TUT compared with 88.9% with the standard procedure. The TUT slide was easy to handle and produced results sooner than conventional methods. Thus the TUT could be very useful for presumptive diagnosis of gonorrhoea when full laboratory facilities are not readily available, as very little equipment is required.

10.  A case of lymphogranuloma venereum of 20 years' duration. Isolation of Chlamydia trachomatis from perianal lesions. 
Chlamydia trachomatis was isolated from perianal lesions in a patient in whom lymphogranuloma venereum had been diagnosed 20 years previously. Treatment with tetracycline resulted in a pronounced improvement. Although C trachomatis is known to persist for a long time in the host, isolation of the micro-organism from infected tissues after such a prolonged period has not previously been reported.

11.  Concentric rings simulating tinea imbricata in secondary syphilis. A case report. 
A female patient with secondary syphilis presented with concentric rings of papules simulating tinea imbricata. To avoid the occurrence of "ping-pong" syphilis, it is stressed that both sexual partners should be treated simultaneously.

12.  Condylomata lata of the palms: an unusual site. 
In an unusual case of condylomata lata of the palms the development of moist hypertrophic papular eruptions is probably explained by the fact that the patient was a car-driver and had hyperhidrosis of the palms.

13.  Sensitivity of Neisseria gonorrhoeae to spectinomycin and thiamphenicol. 
Between 1966 and 1978 the sensitivities of strains of Neisseria gonorrhoeae (70-80 strains in each year) to penicillin, thiamphenicol, and spectinomycin were tested. For penicillin the proportion of less sensitive strains increased from 21% in 1976 to 41% in 1978 and for thiamphenicol from 10% to 18% over the same period. All the strains proved to be sensitive to spectinomycin. A significant correlation in the degree of sensitivity was observed between penicillin and thiamphenicol but not between penicillin and spectinomycin.

14.  Persistent serum immune complexes in syphilis. 
Serum immune complexes were estimated by a polyethylene glycol precipitation method in 51 patients with early syphilis. The immune complexes were increased in 41% of patients before treatment and decreased to normal limits in only 56% during treatment. The results of the specific antireponemal tests using dissolved immune complexes show that antibodies from the immune complexes are specific antibodies.
