Nongonococcal urethritis--a new paradigm. (1/440)

Urethritis in men has been categorized historically as gonococcal or nongonococcal (NGU). The major pathogens causing NGU are Chlamydia trachomatis and Ureaplasma urealyticum. Trichomonas vaginalis may be involved occasionally. In up to one-half of cases, an etiologic organism may not be identified. In this review we present recent advances in the diagnosis and management of NGU and discuss how they may be applied in a variety of clinical settings, including specialized STD clinics and primary health care practices. In particular, the development of the noninvasive urine-based nucleic acid amplification tests may warrant rethinking of the traditional classification of urethritis as gonococcal urethritis or NGU. Diagnostic for Chlamydia are strongly recommended because etiologic diagnosis of chlamydial urethritis may have important public health implications, such as the need for partner referral and reporting. A single 1-g dose of azithromycin was found to be therapeutically equivalent to the tetracyclines and may offer the advantage of better compliance.  (+info)

Isolation of Chlamydia trachomatis from women attending a clinic for sexually transmitted diseases. (2/440)

Attempts were made to isolate Chlamydia trachomatis from the cervix of 300 women attending a clinic for sexually transmitted diseases in Leeds. The women were divided into four groups; (1) 130 were consorts of men suffering from non-specific urethritis; (2) 66 were suffering from gonorrhoea, or were consorts of men suffering from this disease; (3) 56 were suffering from other sexually transmitted diseases; (4) 48 had no evidence of STD. The overall isolation rate of Chlamydia trachomatis was 20%. Positive results were obtained in 30%. of Group 1, in 27-3%. of Group 2, in 3-6%. of Group 3, and in 2-1%. of Group 4. No pathogenic sign or symptom of Chlamydia trachomatis infection of the cervix was detected.  (+info)

A Neisseria gonorrhoeae immunoglobulin A1 protease mutant is infectious in the human challenge model of urethral infection. (3/440)

Many mucosal pathogens, including Neisseria gonorrhoeae, produce proteases that cleave immunoglobulin A (IgA), the predominant immunoglobulin class produced at mucosal surfaces. While considerable circumstantial evidence suggests that IgA1 protease contributes to gonococcal virulence, there is no direct evidence that N. gonorrhoeae requires IgA1 protease activity to infect a human host. We constructed a N. gonorrhoeae iga mutant without introducing new antibiotic resistance markers into the final mutant strain and used human experimental infection to test the ability of the mutant to colonize the male urethra and to cause gonococcal urethritis. Four of the five male volunteers inoculated with the Iga- mutant became infected. In every respect-clinical signs and symptoms, incubation period between inoculation and infection, and the proportion of volunteers infected-the outcome of human experimental infection with FA1090iga was indistinguishable from that previously reported for a variant of parent strain FA1090 matching the mutant in expression of Opa proteins, lipooligosaccharide, and pilin. These results indicate that N. gonorrhoeae does not require IgA1 protease production to cause experimental urethritis in males.  (+info)

Effect of circumcision on incidence of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 and other sexually transmitted diseases: a prospective cohort study of trucking company employees in Kenya. (4/440)

To determine the effect of circumcision status on acquisition of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) type 1 and other sexually transmitted diseases, a prospective cohort study of 746 HIV-1-seronegative trucking company employees was conducted in Mombasa, Kenya. During the course of follow-up, 43 men acquired HIV-1 antibodies, yielding an annual incidence of 3.0%. The annual incidences of genital ulcers and urethritis were 4.2% and 15.5%, respectively. In multivariate analysis, after controlling for demographic and behavioral variables, uncircumcised status was an independent risk factor for HIV-1 infection (hazard rate ratio [HRR=4.0; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.9-8.3) and genital ulcer disease (HRR=2.5; 95% CI, 1.1-5.3). Circumcision status had no effect on the acquisition of urethral infections and genital warts. In this prospective cohort of trucking company employees, uncircumcised status was associated with increased risk of HIV-1 infection and genital ulcer disease, and these effects remained after controlling for potential confounders.  (+info)

Method for studying the role of indigenous cervical flora in colonisation by Neisseria gonorrhoeae. (5/440)

A method for quantitating cervical flora has been evaluated statistically and used to study the bacterial flora of the cervix in 14 women sexually exposed to men with gonococcal urethritis. A comparison was made between those women who subsequently became colonised with Neisseria gonorrhoeae and those who did not to determine whether either total microbial populations or the different species present could be related to colonisation by N. gonorrhoeae. Two control groups of healthy women, one of patients from a public clinic and the other of patients from a private practice, were studied in the same way. Normal flora isolates were tested in vitro for antagonism or synergism toward N. gonorrhoeae or both. Cervical flora was characterised in all patient groups by wide variations between individuals, both in type and numbers of organisms. No significant differences were found in total bacterial populations or in the number of species isolated from the cervix between patient groups. Populations of N. gonorrhoeae ranged from less than 10 bacteria to log104.36. Only one normal flora isolate, a strain of Streptococcus viridans isolated from a woman exposed to but not infected by N. gonorrhoeae, demonstrated inhibition of growth towards N. gonorrhoeae.  (+info)

Drug treatment of common STDs: part I. Herpes, syphilis, urethritis, chlamydia and gonorrhea. (6/440)

In 1998, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released guidelines for the treatment of sexually transmitted diseases. Several treatment advances have been made since the previous guidelines were published. Part I of this two-part article describes current recommendations for the treatment of genital ulcer diseases, urethritis and cervicitis. Treatment advances include effective single-dose regimens for many sexually transmitted diseases and improved therapies for herpes infections. Two single-dose regimens, 1 g of oral azithromycin and 250 mg of intramuscular ceftriaxone, are effective for the treatment of chancroid. A three-day course of 500 mg of oral ciprofloxacin twice daily may be used to treat chancroid in patients who are not pregnant. Parenteral penicillin continues to be the drug of choice for treatment of all stages of syphilis. Three antiviral medications have been shown to provide clinical benefit in the treatment of genital herpes: acyclovir, valacyclovir and famciclovir. Valacyclovir and famciclovir are not yet recommended for use during pregnancy. Azithromycin in a single oral 1-g dose is now a recommended regimen for the treatment of nongonococcal urethritis.  (+info)

Relevance of male accessory gland infection for subsequent fertility with special focus on prostatitis. (7/440)

Infections of the male genitourinary tract may contribute to infertility to a various extent depending on the site of inflammation. Especially in prostatitis, the exact classification of the infection contributes to its impact on changes in the ejaculate. Similarly, in urethritis, epididymitis and orchitis, only a clear clinical diagnosis allows a rational approach to altered sperm parameters. Several inflammatory and reactive alterations of sperm quality seem to be proven; nevertheless, the impact of these findings on male fertility remains in many cases unclear. Even therapeutic trials do not provide more insights into the association of male genital infections and impaired fertility, although the efficacy of antibiotic trials seems to be proven. For the future, it may be decisive to evaluate inflammatory changes in the ejaculate not only on the basis of standard but also on functional parameters, thus providing new definitions of the interactions between male urogenital tract infection and disturbances of male fertility.  (+info)

Asymptomatic urethritis and detection of HIV-1 RNA in seminal plasma. (8/440)

OBJECTIVE: To define risk factors for detection of HIV-1 RNA in semen in men attending the two largest HIV clinics in the West Midlands. METHODS: 94 HIV-1 seropositive men at any stage of infection donated matched semen and blood samples. 36 subjects (38%) were on no antiretroviral treatment, 12 (13%) were on dual therapy, and 46 (49%) were on three or more drugs. Median CD4 count was 291 cells x 10(6)/l. 87 subjects underwent a urethritis screen (Gram stained urethral smear and culture for gonococcus, and LCR for Chlamydia trachomatis on first pass urine). Quantitative cell free HIV-1 RNA was determined by commercial nucleic acid sequence based assay with a lower detection limit of 800 copies/ml for semen and 400 copies/ml for blood. Independent risk factors for seminal HIV RNA detection were defined by logistic regression. RESULTS: In univariate analysis, subjects not taking antiretrovirals were 11 times more likely to shed HIV RNA (21/36 (58%) v 6/58 (10%); p < 0.0001). Seven subjects (8%) had urethritis (including one C trachomatis infection). Urethritis was significantly associated with detection of seminal HIV RNA (adjusted OR, 80.2; p = 0.006), as was blood plasma viral load (adj OR, 19.3 per factor 10 increase; p < 0.001) and age (adj OR, 1.16 per 1 year older; p = 0.001). Antiviral treatment status, absolute CD4 and CD8 count, clinical stage, treatment centre, ethnicity, and risk factor were not independent predictors. No subject with undetectable blood viral load had detectable seminal HIV RNA. CONCLUSION: Asymptomatic urethritis is independently associated with seminal HIV RNA shedding.  (+info)

Urethritis is inflammation of the urethra. The most common symptom is painful or difficult urination. It is usually caused by infection with bacteria. The bacterial infection is often sexually transmitted, but not in every instance. Urethritis can be idiopathic. The disease is classified as either gonococcal urethritis, caused by Neisseria gonorrhoeae, or non-gonococcal urethritis (NGU), most commonly caused by Chlamydia trachomatis. NGU, sometimes called nonspecific urethritis (NSU), has both infectious and noninfectious causes. Urethritis is part of triad of Reiters Syndrome. Other causes include: Adenoviridae Uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) Herpes simplex Cytomegalovirus Mycoplasma genitalium Reactive arthritis Trichomonas vaginalis Ureaplasma urealyticum Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus Group B streptococcus In female patients, urethritis can be caused by pelvic inflammatory disease. In males, the penis and testicles may show signs of pain and swelling. The urethra is ...
OBJECTIVE: To study peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMC) proliferative response to Chlamydia trachomatis elementary bodies in (a) controls, (b) various stages of gonococcal (c) and non-gonococcal urethritis, and (d) women with a clinical diagnosis of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). METHODS: We categorised 102 men presenting to a GUM clinic with urethritis by organisms (C trachomatis (CT) or Neisseria gonorrhoeae (NG) (both by culture), and whether it was their first (urethritis naive) or subsequent (urethritis experienced) attack. 23 women presenting to the clinic with a clinical diagnosis of PID were also investigated. We measured PBMC proliferative responses to C trachomatis (DK20--an oculogenital strain, serovar E), lysate of McCoy cells (used to propagate chlamydiae), and the recall antigen PPD. Controls were 37 men and women without present or past history of urethritis or chlamydial infection. Results were expressed as the ratio of the stimulation index (SI) obtained with DK20 ...
Urethritis is the medical term for inflammation of the urethra (urine canal). For treatment purposes, it is usually classified as gonococcal uretheritis caused by gonorrhoea or non-gonococcal urethritis (NGU). In Ireland it is frequently called non-specific urethritis (NSU).. By the end of the third quarter of 2011, up to the end of September, there were 684 cases of NGU/NSU reported in Ireland. The commonest cause of NGU is chlamydia, but the bacteria Ureaplasma urealyticum and Mycoplasma genitalium are also implicated. Viral causes are rare and include Herpes simplex and Adenovirus. Parasitic causes include trichomonas vaginalis, which is less common in Ireland than gonorrhoea and chlamydia. Non-infectious causes of NGU include irritating chemicals, such as shower gels and douches, spermacides and antiseptics and mechanical injury from a catheter.. ...
Gonococcal urethritis, when symptomatic, has a typical presentation. Men complain of dysuria, urinary frequency, and often a profuse, purulent urethral discharge. Lack of purulent urethral discharge does not rule out gonorrhea, as 25% of cases of gonococcal urethritis in males present with scant discharge. The presentation may be acute, with all symptoms appearing with a void only hours or days after infection. Most are symptomatic at 2 to 5 days (range 1-14 days) after exposure. Commonly, erythema and edema of the urethral meatus are present. In women, there is a higher likelihood of asymptomatic or unrecognized symptoms. Abnormal vaginal discharge, menorrhagia, dysuria, and irregular menstrual bleeding are characteristic symptoms associated with gonococcal infection.. A presumptive diagnosis of gonococcal urethritis can be made with identification of Gram-negative intracellular diplococci on Gram stain of urethral or endocervical discharge.. Nongonococcal urethritis typically presents with ...
Editor,-In the recently published UK national guidelines on sexually transmitted infections and closely related conditions1 ciprofloxacin 500 mg orally as a single dose has been recommended for uncomplicated anogenital infection due to Neisseria gonorrhoeae in adults. However, some studies have shown that an oral dose of 250 mg of ciprofloxacin is an effective treatment for uncomplicated gonorrhoea.2,3. In our department, we have been using ciprofloxacin 250 mg as a single oral dose as first line treatment for uncomplicated gonococcal urethritis and cervicitis and 500 mg of oral dose of ciprofloxacin for rectal and pharyngeal infections since 1997. We reviewed case notes of patients with uncomplicated gonococcal infections who attended our department between 1 January 1999 and 31 December 1999. A total of 61 patients with a positive culture were analysed. Of the 61 patients 42 patients with gonococcal urethritis and cervicitis were treated with ciprofloxacin 250 mg as a single oral dose. Eleven ...

Answer: The inflammation from urethritis can take some time to settle. Particularly, for example, if its due to adenovirus it can take weeks for the dysuria to spontaneously disappear. In other situations its worth enquiring about heavy alcohol intake as its well known that binge drinking can dehydrate the body sufficiently to make the patient feel like there is a urethritis the following day when passing highly concentrated urine. I explain this to young men by using the analogy of going for a pee immediately after a bath or shower. There can be initial stinging in the urethra as the urinary pH is changed from neutral pH of water, to the acidic or basic pH of the urine. My girlfriend has been diagnosed with BV.

Epithelial cells in first catch urine (FCU) specimens from 87 men with and without urethritis were quantified. Epithelial cells were broadly categorised into transitional and squamous populations using morphological characteristics and immunostaining with anti-pan leukocyte and anti-cytokeratin monoclonal antibodies. The majority (77/87 = 89%) of samples contained both transitional (76/87 = 87%; range 1 × 104 - 6 × 105, median 6 × 104) and squamous (57/87 = 66%; range 1 × 104 - 8 × 105, median 2 × 104) epithelial cells. The number of transitional cells correlated with the number of squamous cells (Spearmans rho = 0.697 p | 0.001). Squamous, but not transitional, cell numbers correlated with leukocyte numbers (Spearmans rho = 0.216 p = 0.045 and rho = 0.171 and p = 0.113, respectively). However there was no significant difference in epithelial cell numbers between men with and without urethritis. Nevertheless, some men with urethritis had relatively high numbers of transitional cells in their FCU

Mr. A asks his new primary care physician whether he should get an HIV test. He states that he has absolutely no risk factors for HIV. He is a very healthy 21-year-old African American man who has been in a monogamous relationship with his current girlfriend for 2 years. The girlfriend was tested for HIV 6 months ago when a Board of Health nurse notified her that she might have been exposed to HIV, and retested 3 months ago. Both HIV tests were negative, effectively ruling out HIV infection.. Mr. A first became sexually active at age 15. Over the last 6 years, he has had only 4 female partners, although with a bit of overlap between the relationships (he had 2 simultaneous partners for about a year). He has never had sex with a male.

This is likely due to nonspecific urethritis and many people so afflicted describe discomfort of the urethra that extends within the penis, sometimes but not always exacerbated on urination. On occasion, pain has also been described at the level of the scrotum or testicles.

The microbe Mycoplasma genitalium has in several studies been proposed as an individual cause of non-gonococcal urethritis (NGU) in men, and has been associated with pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) and salpingitis. The prevalence of M genitalium has generally been 50-90% of the prevalence of C trachomatis, and this seems to be the case in Sweden as well. This is the first study of the pathogenesis and prevalence of M genitalium in northern Sweden. In total 823 samples, 340 from women and 483 from men, were screened for M genitalium by using a PCR method. Thirtythree (4.0%) patients, 13 (3.8%) women and 20 (4.1%) men, were infected by M genitalium. In the same group 60 (7.3%) patients, 16 (4.7%) women and 44 (9.1%) men, were infected by Chlamydia trachomatis. None of the 22 patients that were tested after treatment with azitromycin was still infected.. ...
We report significant failure rates (28%, 95% confidence interval 15%-45%) after administering 1 g azithromycin to men with Mycoplasma genitalium-positive nongonococcal urethritis. In vitro evidence supported reduced susceptibility of M. genitalium to macrolides. Moxifloxacin administration resulted in rapid symptom resolution and eradication of infection in all cases. These findings have implications for management of urethritis.

Isolation of T strain mycoplasmas was found to be directly related to sexual activity in three groups of women. Metabolic inhibition titers followed the same pattern, the number of titers increased with sexual activity. The rate of mycoplasma isolations from the urine of asymptomatic males was lower in statistically significant levels than the rate of mycoplasma isolations from patients attending the genitoinfectious disease clinic. Nonspecific urethritis due to T strain mycoplasmas is a discrete entity which can be diagnosed in the initial office visit. Normal sexually active controls without prior history of urethritis have only an 18% incidence of positive T strain cultures, whereas patients with nonspecific urethritis range from 60%-70% positive T strain mycoplasma cultures in a urethral washout urine specimen.

By Steven Reinberg. A vaccine to protect people from the sexually transmitted disease gonorrhea may be one step closer to reality, New Zealand researchers report.. Thats welcome news, because gonorrhea appears to be eluding treatment efforts to control the disease. Antibiotics are the only available treatment, but strains of antibiotic-resistant gonorrhea have developed, according to U.S. health officials.. Despite efforts, a gonorrhea vaccine with any clinical effect has eluded development for over 100 years, said lead researcher Helen Petousis-Harris, a senior lecturer at the University of Auckland.. Venereal disease is becoming an increasingly serious problem in developing countries. The availability of antibiotics in chemists shops has encouraged self-medication with sub-therapeutic doses and inadequate treatment regimens. At a health centre in Nigeria, a diagnosis of gonococcal urethritis was made in 159 out of 429 men presenting with urethritis. Neisseria gonorrhoeae was cultured in ...
Grepafloxacin hydrochloride (trade name Raxar, Glaxo Wellcome) was an oral broad-spectrum fluoroquinolone antibacterial agent used to treat bacterial infections. Grepafloxacin was withdrawn worldwide from markets in 1999, owing to its side effect of lengthening the QT interval on the electrocardiogram, leading to cardiac events and sudden death. Grepafloxacin was used for treating exacerbations of chronic bronchitis caused by susceptible bacteria (e.g. Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Moraxella catarrhalis), community-acquired pneumonia (including those, in addition to the above germs, caused by Mycoplasma pneumoniae) gonorrhea and non-gonococcal urethritis and cervicitis (for example caused by Chlamydia trachomatis or Ureaplasma urealyticum). The preparation of quinolones bearing a substituent at position 5 is complicated by the greater electrophilic character of the 8 position. One scheme for resolving the problem consists in blocking access to position 8 by first adding a ...

INTRODUCTION: Gonorrhoea is a common sexually transmitted disease caused by Neisseria gonorrhoeae (Ng) infection. Light microscopy of urogenital smears is used as a simple tool to diagnose urogenital gonorrhoea in many resource-limited settings. We aimed to evaluate the accuracy of light microscopy to diagnose urogenital gonorrhoea as compared with a PCR-based test. METHODS: In 2014, we examined 632 male urethral and 360 endocervical smears in clinic-based and outreach settings in Jakarta, Yogyakarta and Denpasar, Indonesia. Using the detection of Ng DNA by a validated PCR as reference test, we evaluated the accuracy of two light microscopic criteria to diagnose urogenital gonorrhoea in genital smears: (1) the presence of intracellular Gram-negative diplococci (IGND) and (2) ≥5 polymorphonuclear leucocytes (PMNL)/oil-immersion field (oif) in urethral or ≥20 PMNL/oif in endocervical smears. RESULTS: In male urethral smears, IGND testing had a sensitivity (95% CI), specificity (95% CI) and ...

First-line treatment for gonorrhea is ceftriaxone plus either azithromycin or doxycycline. In this study, antimicrobial susceptibility testing was done on more than 34 000 urethral isolates from U.S. men with symptomatic gonococcal urethritis. Isolates of Neisseria gonorrhoeae from men who have sex with men were significantly more likely than isolates from men who have sex exclusively with women to exhibit elevated cephalosporin minimal inhibitory concentrations and antimicrobial resistance. This testing is not usually done in routine practice, but clinicians should actively follow men who have sex with men after first-line treatment for gonorrhea for possible treatment failure. ...

Risk factors for UTI in a woman are previous UTIs, abnormal anatomy, stones or other obstructions, sexual intercourse and use of spermicidal jellies. Women in some countries may not complain due to social taboos.. Diagnosis is based on history and finding of pus cells and bacteria in midstream urine. It can be confirmed by urine culture. Collection of proper midstream sample after proper cleaning and drying of genital areas is important to avoid false results.. Treament consists of short course of antibiotics in uncomplicated cases.
