Rights and PermissionsRights and Permissions

Factors relating to default among 100 health educated and 63 uneducated patients with gonorrhoea were studied. Default was not significantly associated with age, marital status or level of education. Repeaters were not particularly more prone to default than non-repeaters. Health education did not significantly influence default. Default was significantly low (p.001) among a small group of patients with concomitant diseases detected at the initial or follow - up visits. A high incidence of trichomoniasis (14.5%) in the present study detected in the follow-up period emphasizes the need for thorough clinical and laboratory examination at each follow up visit.
