Urethral syndrome in women attending a clinic for sexually transmitted diseases.
  1. S K Panja


    Of 107 women investigated for frequency of micturition and dysuria, 21 had gonorrhoea, 14 chlamydial urethritis, eight an Escherichia coli urinary tract infection, 18 candidosis, 12 trichomoniasis, and four asymptomatic genital herpes. No organisms were isolated from 30 patients. Eighty nine women referred themselves and 18 were referred by the family practitioner. These findings suggest that Chlamydia trachomatis is frequently associated with the urethral syndrome among patients attending sexually transmitted disease clinics.
