1/5. lymphogranuloma venereum in human immunodeficiency virus-infected individuals in new york city.

    lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV), or chlamydial proctitis, is a classic sexually transmitted disease with prominent gastrointestinal manifestations. The disease has received little attention in recent years, especially in relation to human immunodeficiency virus (hiv) infection. However, outbreaks of LGV have been reported in several large cities in europe and the united states over the past few years, occurring in both hiv-infected and -uninfected individuals, and the reports have been largely limited to the sexually transmitted disease literature. We recently diagnosed four cases of chlamydial proctitis in hiv-infected individuals, who had different clinical presentations but very similar endoscopic and histopathologic features, as well as prompt and complete response to therapy. It is important for gastroenterologists to recognize that LGV may be reemerging as a relevant clinical entity, because of its similarity to inflammatory bowel diseases and its response to treatment with antibiotics.

2/5. Problematic ulcerative lesions in sexually transmitted diseases: surgical management.

    Chronic intractable ulcerative lesions, with or without lymphedema, are occasional sequelae of various sexually transmitted diseases that lead to gross morbidity. This study of 15 such cases, including seven of granuloma inguinale, four of lymphogranuloma venereum, three of confined lesions (granuloma inguinale and lymphogranuloma venereum), and one of sexually transmitted amebic ulcer of the penis, employed surgical procedures aimed at sound healing after a single-stage procedure. The surgical techniques included full skin cover by direct flaps, myocutaneous flaps, sliding flaps (floating island), and excision of the involved rectum (two cases). Nine lesions healed by primary intention, one by spontaneous contraction of the wound, and two needed limited secondary procedures. In view of the paucity of literature on the subject, an argument is made for identifying such cases and saving them from prolonged morbidity by a suitable single-stage surgical procedure.

3/5. Radiographic findings of infectious proctitis in homosexual men.

    Homosexual men are known to have an increased incidence of sexually transmitted proctitis. A knowledge of the pathogenesis and the radiographic appearance of these processes has resulted in earlier diagnosis and more rapid institution of appropriate therapy. While gonococcus (neisseria gonorrhoeae) and lymphogranuloma venereum (usually Chlamydia) have long been considered the common etiologies of proctitis in this population, other organisms, such as herpes, mycoplasma, and entamoeba have been implicated and could give an identical radiographic and clinical pattern. Diffuse narrowing and ulceration limited to the rectum was seen in five affected homosexual men recently studied at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, chicago.

4/5. lymphogranuloma venereum: a case report in an Italian traveller.

    A 38-year-old man with a recent history of travel in india and unprotected sexual intercourse with Indian women, was admitted with painful enlarged lymphnodes predominantly in the right inguinal area. diagnosis of lymphogranuloma venereum was made by means of a positive immunofluorescence test (Total Ig titer of 1:512) and a positive detection of chlamydial antigens by ELISA in a semen sample. He was successfully treated with ciprofloxacin. This observation emphasizes the relevance of infection due to C. trachomatis serotypes L1-L3 that may be acquired during travel in developing countries.

5/5. The gay bowel syndrome: clinico-pathologic correlation in 260 cases.

    The clinical and pathological findings in a group of 260 homosexual men comprising 10% of a private proctologic practice are reviewed. A clinical pattern of anorectal and colon diseases encountered with unusual frequency in these homosexual patients is termed the gay bowel syndrome. The clinical diagnoses in decreasing order of frequency include condyloma acuminata, hemorrhoids, nonspecific proctitis, anal fistula, perirectal abscess, anal fissure, amebiasis, benign polyps, viral hepatitis, gonorrhea, syphilis, anorectal trauma and foreign bodies, shigellosis, rectal ulcers and lymphogranuloma venereum. 60 anorectal and sigmoid biopsies from 51 patients failed to disclose evidence of specific infection other than condyloma acuminata. Of 21 patients with biopsy diagnosis of nonspecific proctitis, 8 had a specific infection which was detected by other means,--5 cases of shigellosis and one case each of gonorrheal proctitis, amebiasis and lymphogranuloma venereum. In evaluating proctologic problems in the gay male, all of the known sexually transmitted diseases should be considered. Shigellosis, amebiasis and viral hepatitis should be included. Microbiological evaluation is essential. Concurrent infections with 2 or more pathogens should be anticipated. chlamydia trachomatis, an important cause of nonspecific urethritis in the general population, is high on the list of possible causes of the nonspecific proctitis present in 31 of the 260 patients.
