  1. P Terho


    Chlamydia trachomatis was isolated from the urethra of 38 (28.6%) out of 133 men with gonococcal urethritis (GU). During the follow up of 72 men postgonococcal urethritis (PGU) was diagnosed in 50 (69.5%) patients. More than half (30 out of 50) of these patients with PGU were Chlamydia-positive. Out of 31 patients with Chlamydia 30 developed PGU whether or not procaine penicillin, spectinomycin, or gentamicin were used. These findings are discussed in relation to present recommendations for the treatment and follow up of patients with GU.
