SP Datta, A Velou
March-April 1968, 34(2):70-76
Trends in the prevalence of venereal diseases in Pondicherry is discussed for the period 1961-65 based on the past records of Venereal Disease Clinics in General Hospital Pondicherry run by the staff of the Medical College, Pondicherry. Diseases like lympho-granuloma venereum, granuloma inguinale and non-specific urethritis have been diagnosed which were not reported before 1959. Similarly cases of cardiovascular and neurosyphilis have been recorded. Syphilis, all stages are responsible for 37.03 per cent of the total attendance. Primary syphilis was responsible for 50 percent, secondary syphilis 12 to 19 per cent, latent syphilis 25 to 35 per cent and tertiary syphilis 3 to 7 percent of the total attendance. Gonoffhoea is responsible for 17.42 per cent, Chancroid 25.85 per cent, lymphogranuloma venereum 6.21 per cent, granuloma inguinale 5.02 per cent and non-specific urethritis 8.47 per cent of the total attendance. Chancroid has moved up as a second leading cause of attendance in place of gonorrhoea. Males predominate over the females in all these diseases.

Scleredema-brief Review of Literature and Case Reports
DN Mulay, JS Mehta, BB Ahuja
March-April 1968, 34(2):57-63
The cases posed no diagnostic problem. The signs, symptoms and the progression of the disease were consistent with the diagnosis of scleredema. The first case occurred during the convalescence after delivery. In the second case the history was typical and illness started with throat infection. The lesions of scleredema spread gradually to the distant parts but remained limited to arms and thighs in the upper and the lower extremities respectively. The progress was gradual and the whole process was completed in 18 days with the development of dyspnoea which forced him to attend the hospital. The extent of involvement was variable in both the cases. In the former it was more or less localised only to the shoulders and hips but face and neck were free, while in the second case nearly the whole body was involved except the distal parts of upper and lower extremities. The skin colour changes were also variable. The skin was of normal colour in the first while it was erythematous in the second case which led to the false diagnosis of angioneurotic edema. Biopsy in both the cases was confirmatory. The biochemical examination of blood and urine for creatinine were also normal. So far the treatment was concerned, the first case was alright within two months, while the other did not improve with dexamethasone for five days till it was combined with tetracycline.

Venereal Disease Among Seafarers Visiting an Eastern Seaport
CS Tunga Ratna
March-April 1968, 34(2):93-103
Many shipping companies do not take full advantage of the facilities afforded to seamen for free examination and treatment where necessary of venereal disease by the port VD Clinics who are specially trained for the purpose : 'Non-venereal' cases accounted for over 40 per cent of the seamen attending the, clinic, indicating their concern about venereal diseases and the necessity of establishing venereal disease clinics at every seaport. A general health card for seafarers is desirable but until this comes into force the importance of the personal booklet should be emphasized. Training given to chief officers and other non-medical personnel regarding diagnosis and treatment of venereal disease is inadequate and steps should be taken to remedy this. It should be possible, without excessive additional expenditure, to establish venereal disease clinics in ports not providing such facilities by utilizing staff of the nearest available VD clinic on part time basis.
