Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Some of the diagnostic procedures for uncomplicated urogenital and rectal gonorrhea were studied in a university-based venereal disease clinic. On the basis of our results, recommendations are made concerning the types of media to be used, sites to be sampled, methods of obtaining specimens, and other diagnostic considerations. We conclude that ongoing quality control including a review of diagnostic procedures should be carried on in all venereal disease clinics.
