Behçet's disease is a chronic inflammatory condition of unknown origin characterized by multiple organ involvement. The most common symptoms of Behçet's disease are recurrent oral and/or genital ulcerations in combination with symptoms affecting eyes, skin, central and peripheral nervous system, blood vessels and gastrointestinal tract. We present a 43-year-old female patient with the history of recurrent episodes of genital and oral ulcerations, elevated acute phase reactants and skin lesions. The diagnosis of Behçet's disease has been delayed (for more than 10 years) and reached only after she developed neurological and ocular symptoms...

We describe the first case of chancroid seen in the Czech Republic, diagnosed in a 40-year-old heterosexual HIV-positive man. Despite genital localization of the ulcer, the transmission of Haemophilus ducreyi infection in our patient remains unclear, as he denied having sexual intercourse and he did not travel outside the Czech Republic for several months before the ulcer appeared. The correct diagnosis has been revealed by a multiplex nucleic acid amplification test. Physicians in countries in the eastern and central Europe region should be aware that chancroid can occur in their patients...

Among 1337 Iranian adult female sex workers in 2015, we assessed the diagnostic value of 4 self-reported sexually transmitted infection (STIs) symptoms for detecting laboratory-confirmed gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomoniasis, human papillomavirus (HPV), and syphilis. While 37.7% reported vaginal discharge (VD), 25.9% reported pain or burning (P/B), 3.0% reported genital ulcers (GU), and 1.4% reported genital warts (GW), the prevalence of laboratory-confirmed syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomoniasis, and HPV was 0...

Lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV) is a condition caused by invasive serovars of Chlamydia trachomatis. The classical inguinal presentation that is characterized by the development of transient genital ulcer(s) and inguinal or femoral lymphadenopathy has decreased in our environment. At present, infection by this bacterium has emerged as an important cause of proctitis and proctocolitis in men who have sex with other men. We report the case of a homosexual man with acute proctitis that was complicated by a perirectal abscess secondary to a Chlamydia trachomatis infection...

Bechet's Disease is an inflammatory disease characterized by recurrent oral ulcers (OU), genital ulcers (GU) and uveitis which can develop a neurobehavioral syndrome, also defined as 'neuro-psycho- BS'. Depending on vascular or parenchymal lesions, the presentations could be varied. Due to sparse literature, there is no consensus on management of psychiatric illness comorbid with Bechet's disease. Bipolar disorder in Bechet's disease is extremely rare. Here, we are presenting a case of episodic exaggeration of Bipolar disorder along with Bechet's disease which imposed both clinical and management challenges...

Acute myeloid leukaemia is a myeloid neoplasm with an extremely varying clinical appearance. Skin lesions are common for specific subtypes of acute myeloid leukaemia but are often misinterpreted. Here, we present a case of acute myeloid leukaemia in a young woman exhibiting genital ulcerations and gingival erosions.

Vascular Behçet's disease (BD) would keep risk of anastomotic pseudoaneurysm due to deterioration of the disease even after vascular surgery was successfully done. Therefore, it is one of the least-welcome diseases for vascular surgeons. There still exist several points on a concept and criteria of the vascular BD which not only general practitioners but also the vascular surgeons do not understand. Clinical findings strongly suspecting vascular BD are follows; saccular aneurysms without atherosclerosis developed in younger than 50-year-old patients, superior vena cava syndrome or deep vein thrombosis in bilateral legs without apparent causes, and multiple superficial thrombophlebitis, etc...

RATIONALE: Behçet disease (BD) is a recurrent vasculitis characterized by oral and genital mucous membrane ulcers, uveitis, and skin lesions but only rarely leg ulcers. To our knowledge, no efficacious therapy has been described for BD patients with complicating, destructive leg ulcers. PATIENT CONCERNS: Here, We report the case of a 55-year-old woman with generalized erythema nodosum-like, papulopustular lesions, recurrent oral and genital ulcers accompanied with recurrent leg ulcers and trouble walking...

Behçet's disease (BD) is a systemic inflammatory disorder involving the oral and genital mucosa, skin, eyes, gastrointestinal tract, joints, vasculature, and nervous. The gastrointestinal lesions accompanying with BD can extend along the full length of the tract, from the mouth to the anus, and show various clinical characteristics which is difficult to be differentiate from the other inflammatory bowel diseases including ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. Hence, the differential diagnosis is difficult and can affect treatment outcomes...

Herpes simplex virus is a common causative agent of oral and genital diseases. Novel vaccines and therapeutics are needed to combat herpes infections especially after the failure of subunit vaccines in human clinical trials. We have shown that the live-attenuated HSV-1 VC2 vaccine strain is unable to establish latency in vaccinated animals and produces a robust immune response capable of completely protecting mice against lethal vaginal HSV-1 or HSV-2 infections. The guinea pig represents the best small animal model of genital HSV-2 disease...

OVERVIEW: We describe the first case of a cutaneous ulcer caused by Haemophilus ducreyi imported from Indonesia to the Netherlands. Skin infections caused by H. ducreyi are uncommon in travellers and have been described in just a few case reports and were all contracted on the Pacific Islands. THE CASE: A 22-year-old healthy male visited the Center of Tropical Medicine and Travel Medicine in February 2017 with a cutaneous ulcer of the right lateral malleolus 4 weeks after returning from Indonesia (Seram and Ambon Islands)...

Behçet's disease is an inflammatory disease, the origin of which still remains unclear, and it has multiple manifestations , one of them being thrombosis. In this report, we describe the case of a 24-year-old Moroccan patient who presented with headache persisting for more than 2 weeks, which was found to be caused by cerebral venous sinus thrombosis. His medical history of recurrent oral and genital ulcerations, epididymitis and one episode of pericarditis led to the diagnosis of Behçet's disease. We could observe an almost complete relief of symptoms with colchicine therapy, and anticoagulation with warfarin was started for secondary prevention of thrombosis...

BACKGROUND: In South Africa, treatment of genital ulcer disease (GUD) occurs in the context of syndromic management. GUD aetiological studies have been conducted in Johannesburg since 2007. We report on GUD pathogen prevalence, sero-prevalence of STI co-infections and aetiological trends among GUD patients presenting to a community-based primary healthcare facility in Johannesburg over a 9-year period. METHODS AND FINDINGS: GUD surveys were conducted from January to April each year...

Elderly men are at higher risk of developing genital dermatologic problems, including inflammatory and neoplastic conditions due to age-related physiologic changes, immunosenescence, comorbidities, and iatrogenesis. Clinical manifestations of genital dermatoses in men are varied and may include itching, pain, redness, dermatitis, lumps, and ulcers. Even when asymptomatic, the psychologic impact may be significant. Sexual or urinary dysfunction may complicate genital dermatoses. Early and accurate diagnosis is essential to reduce morbidity and mortality from premalignant and malignant conditions and also to prevent sexual dysfunction and unnecessary anxiety in the case of benign entities...

Objective of this study was to describe the patient characteristics and clinical presentation of laboratory confirmed lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV) cases, diagnosed at the Institute of Tropical Medicine (ITM), Antwerp, Belgium. Demographic and biomedical characteristics of all patients with chlamydia-positive sample results were retrieved for the years 2013 and 2014. Samples were obtained from both symptomatic and asymptomatic patients who consulted at the HIV/STI clinic. Fifty four patients with laboratory confirmed LGV were detected among 3885 nucleic acid amplification tests (NAATs) performed for the detection of chlamydia during the two years under review...
