9.  Frequency of simultaneous carriage of Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Neisseria meningitidis. 
Gonococci were found by culture in 112 of 442 patients suspected of having gonorrhoea. Meningococci were cultured from the pharynx more than twice as often in patients harbouring gonococci (26%) than in patients from whom gonococci could not be cultured (11%). These results could indicate an individual susceptibility to Neisseria organisms or they could be caused by a difference in the behaviour of patients with and without gonorrhoea, the conduct of the former making them not only more likely to be infected with Neisseria gonorrhoeae but possibly more exposed to Neisseria meningitidis as well.

15.  Rapid staining technique for Trichomonas vaginalis. Preliminary report. 
A simple, rapid, staining method for the identification of Trichomonas vaginalis has been tested on cultured trichomonads and specimens of vaginal discharge. Fifty-eight stained slides of vaginal discharge were examined and trichomonads were correctly identified in the 31 specimens from patients with confirmed vaginal trichomoniasis. No false-positive results were obtained. This staining procedure could prove a useful addition to wet-film and cultural methods.

22.  Reinfection with disseminated gonococcal disease. 
A 20-year-old prostitute was admitted to hospital with joint pains and a macular and pustular rash on the fingers and feet on two occasions. Disseminated gonococcal infection was diagnosed and successfully treated.

23.  Comparison of anal and rectal swabs in the diagnosis of anorectal gonorrhoea in women. 
Among 228 women with gonorrhoea (confirmed by culture), swabs taken blindly from the anal canal gave positive results in 26.3% and those taken from the rectum under direct vision in 27.6%. Swabs from both sites gave positive results in 23.2% of patients, from the anal canal alone in 3.1%, and from the rectum alone in 4.4%. Thus, culuture of anal canal swabs seems to give as reliable results as rectal swabs when proctoscopy cannot be carried out.
