10.  Diagnosis of rectal gonorrhoea by blind anorectal swabs compared with direct vision swabs taken via a proctoscope. 
Eight hundred and twenty-three examinations were carried out on 662 homosexual patients. At each examination a blind anorectal swab and a rectal swab taken via a proctoscope were inoculated on to a culture plate. From a total of 100 gonococcal infections of the rectum 96 gave positive results from blind anorectal swabs and 99 from swabs taken via a proctoscope. Blind anorectal swabs proved to be a reliable method in the diagnosis of rectal gonorrhoea.

13.  In which hospital departments may sexually transmitted diseases be seen? The views of 56 medical students. 
Fifty-six medical students were asked to list the hospital departments where sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) might be seen and to name the conditions that might occur. The students mentioned 37 departments altogether. Forthy-seven students listed six or more departments and 43 described 11 or more conditions that might be seen. The departments mentioned were placed in ranking order. Over half the students stated that patients with STDs might present in departments of dermatology, neurology, gynaecology, ophthalmology, general medicine, urology, and rheumatology. Writing the lists did not encroach on the time available for clinical teaching and it helped stude-nts to visualise the ways and places in which STDs may present. This form of teaching could be used in other branches of medicine.

14.  Investigations on reactivity of sera in endemic syphilis from Bosnia 20 years after treatment. 
Sera from 225 patients who 20 years earlier had been infected with endemic syphilis and adequately treated with penicillin (PAM 4.8-6 megaunits) at various stages of the disease, were investigated for serological reactivity by the fluorescent treponemal antibody absorption (FTA-ABS), treponemal haemagglutination, and Venereal Diseases Research Laboratory tests. Specific antibodies were found in a large percentage of cases and their presence may be assumed to depend on persisting specific antigen which stimulates their synthesis.

16.  Buschke-Löwenstein's tumour presenting with urinary fistula. 
A case of Buschke-Löwenstein's tumour presenting with urinary fistula is described. The large lesion in the subpreputial sac occluded the preputial opening and infiltrated beneath the skin of the shaft of the penis resulting in a fungating growth encasing the fistulous tract. The lesion responded well to 25% podophyllin, which is reportedly unusual.

17.  Comparison of ornidazole and tinidazole in single-dose treatment of trichomoniasis in women. 
A comparison is made between oral ornidazole in a single 1-5 g dose and tinidazole given in a 2 g dose using a double-blind technique. All the 45 women with Trichomonas vaginalis infection who were treated with ornidazole were cured. In the tinidazole-treated group 41 out of 43 women had negative cultures after treatment. Tolerance was good in both groups.

18.  Isolation of Chlamydia trachomatis from throat and rectum of homosexual men 
Isolation of Chlamydia trachomatis is reported from homosexual men: from the throat with no abnormal symptoms and from the rectum in two cases of proctitis.

23.  Yeasts and circumcision in the male. 
Sixty-six circumcised men and 69 uncircumcised men, both heterosexual and homosexual, had specimens taken from the coronal sulcus and meatus of the penis. Yeasts were isolated at similar rates in both the circumcised (14%) and uncircumcised (17%) men. The circumcised men had significantly fewer symptoms (P = 0-0058). Therefore the female partners of both circumcised and uncircumcised men are exposed to similar rates of yeast infection despite the absence of symptoms in circumcised men. Eighty per cent of the female contacts of yeast-positive men had yeast infection while 32% of the contacts of yeast-negative men were affected. This difference was statistically significant (0-05 greater than P greater than 0-025). Men with non-specific genital infection seemed more likely to carry yeasts than men with gonorrhoea or normal men.

24.  Triple tetracycline (Deteclo) in the treatment of chlamydial infection of the female genital tract 
The efficacy of treating genital Chlamydia in women using Deteclo 300 mg twice daily for seven and 21 days has been studied. Forty-four patients were treated for seven days and 20 for 21 days. Seven days of treatment was as effective in eliminating Chlamydia trachomatis from the female genital tract as 21 days. The reproducibility of the technique of isolation of C. trachomatis was assessed by delaying treatment in 10 patients for up to 156 days and finding C. trachomatis still present.
