The new patient load per day at the VD clinic was less in winter than in summer. The age pattern of cases was similar in both seasons, maximum percentage being in the age group of 15-35 years. The markedly low percentage of female patients may be due to several factors, such as social fear of defamation and less acuteness of the venereal disease in females. The religion distribution was similar to that of general population. The morbidity pattern was characterised mainly by the presence of cases of gonococcal and syphilitic infections, the two major venereal diseases. There were no cases of granuloma venereum or lymphogranuloma.
