Single Dose Intramuscular Therapy with 1.2 Million Units of Procaine Penicillin G in Acute Gonococcal Urethritis and Comparative Studies on Egg Enriched Trypsin-digest Beef-extract Agar Medium
SJ Yawalkar, BS Mababir
July-August 1967, 33(4):205-207
We conclude that a single intramuscular dose of 1.2 million units of procaine penicillin G is an effective, economical and suitable remedy for uncomplicated cases of acute gonococcal urethritis in males. In this series, the cure rate was 95.9 percent and there were no side-effects of the therapy. In our opinion, trypsin-digest beef agar medium enriched with hen's egg is economical, stable and definitely better than the chocolate agar medium for the primary diagnosis of gonococcal infections.

Ruby Angiomas in Cirrhosis of Liver
C Kirtikant Shah, C Arunakant Shah, Pravin Shah
July-August 1967, 33(4):174-176
The literature on ruby angiomas is reviewed and their connection with cirrhosis of liver is shown. Data on the incidence of ruby angiomas were obtained from observations on sixty normal persons and sixty cases of cirrhosis of liver in both the sexes belonging to different age groups. Ruby angiomas were found more numerous in cirrhosis of liver than in normal persons. They may form one of the cutaneous manifestations of microangiopathy occurring in hepatocellular failure. The pathogenesis of these angiomas is obscure.

Treatment of Cutaneous Tuberculosis with Isonicotinic Acid Hydrazide Exclusively
MI Joy, T Gopinathan
July-August 1967, 33(4):181-184
A simple form of treatment of cutaneous tuberculosis is presented in this interim report. We are impressed with the initial success. INH therapy is economical and comparatively free from side effects. We agree that this is a small series with short term follow up. Final assessment requires larger series and long term study. To our knowledge this is the first report using INH exclusively in the cutaneous tuberculosis from India.

A Study of Donovanosis At Guntur
M Ramachander, S Jayalaxmi, P Pankaja
July-August 1967, 33(4):236-244
A five year study of Donovanosis from 1-1-1%2 to 31-12-1966 at the Govt. General Hospital Guntur is presented. 25796 cases of venereal diseases were seen during the period out of which 867 cases were of Donovanosis giving a percentage of 3.36% which is the highest incidence so far reported in the literature. 91.48% of cases were found in the age group 16-40 years which is the period of maximum sexual activity. The youngest patient in out series was 13 years and the oldest 60 years-of age. 20.2% was found in teenagers indicating the present high incidence of venereal diseases in the teenagers. 665 cases seen were males and 202 were females giving a male preponderance in a ratio of 3.3:1. Some clinical problems and the close resemblance of Donovanosis to Epidermoid carcinoma are considered. In 63% of the cases the incubation period ranged between 1-4 weeks which can be considered the average incubation period for Donovanosis. 54.4% of males and 56.5% of females were married and the probable reasons for the greater incidence of Donovanosis in the married of both sexes are suggested. In our series 14 cases of conjugal Donovanosis were seen. Conjugal Donovanosis is not rare, but difficult to detect for lack of examination of both the sexual paterns. In our experience true spontaneous cure of Donovanosis is unknown. The shortest duration of infection was 3 days and the longest duration was 9 years. 25 cases out of 867 were extra genital forming 2.9%. Commonest sites were the anal and perianal regions and in the majority due to perverted sexual practices. Two cases in our study had both Donovanosis and cancer and it was difficult to decide which was the earlier lesion. The drug of choice in the treatment of Donovanosis is streptomycin. We had 16 cases of streptomycin resistant Donovanosis treated successfully with Broad Spectrum Antibiotics.

Comparative Value of the Serological Tests Using Specific Treponemal Antigens in the Diagnosis of Syphilis
CW Chacko, L Yogeswari
July-August 1967, 33(4):213-235
In this study of the comparative value of serologic tests for syphilis the TPI test using the virulent live T pallidum as its specific antigen, has been observed to be less reactive or "less sensitive" than the "VDRL slide test using the non- treponemal Cardiolipin antigen in "early stage of Syphilis". The sensitivity of the TPI test was found to improve to the ideal 100 percent in late stage of syphilis in which the serologic tests for syphilis have the greatest diagnostic value. In non- syphilitic conditions, the non-reactivity or the "specificity" of the TPI test was also found to be 100 percent in contrast to that of the VDRL test. Therefore the TPI test is considered as the ideal test to be made available in the sero-diagnosis of syphilis. But its technique is too difficult and costly to be established as a routine diagnostic test in all laboratories. However it can be performed in a Central or regional reference laboratory in India at least as a "supplementary reference verification test, by a modified technique of it successfully tried in this study.

A clinico-histological case of syringoma in a male patient of 37 years is reported. Unusual is the late developement of lesions at the age of 32, as opposed to the frequent occurrence at puberty. The histological picture was that of syringoma, however there was no evidence of trichoepithelioma, though the simultaneous occurrence of syringoma and trichoepithchoma has been reported.
