Sexuality adolescent sex venereal

Girish H Banwari
Traditionally, sexual abuse is under-reported and under-recognized when the victims are boys. A study carried out by the Government of India in 2007 suggests that every second child/adolescent in the country faces some form of sexual abuse and it is nearly equally prevalent in both sexes. The significance of the problem is undermined all the more when the abuse is perpetrated by a peer. Sexual activity between children and adolescents that occurs without consent or as a result of coercion is tantamount to abuse...

The aim of the study was to evaluate clinical, epidemiological and demographic data of patients with syphilis hospitalized at the Department of Dermatovenereology of the General Teaching Hospital in 2009 and to identify the groups at high risk of sexually transmitted diseases. The results were compared with the previous surveys carried out between 1999 and 2005 and also with the data of the National Registry of Venereal Diseases for 2008. A total of 232 patients were hospitalized in 2009 (including 26 women admitted for compulsory retreatment in pregnancy)...

BACKGROUND: Genital warts, which are caused by infection with human papillomavirus (HPV), are one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases in Europe. Although genital warts are commonly perceived as a non-serious condition, treatment is often long, of varying effectiveness and the recurrence rate is high. Very few studies have been performed on the personal consequences of genital warts. The aim of this qualitative study, set in Denmark, was to examine the ways in which genital warts may affect patients' quality of life...

There is a lack of large studies appraising the effect of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) on the course of syphilis since the advent of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). We aimed to appraise the effect of HIV on clinical and serologic features of syphilis at baseline and during follow-up in the post-HAART era.We designed a retrospective cohort study of consecutive syphilis cases, diagnosed between 2000 and 2007, in an academic venereal disease center. Data were collected using standardized medical forms...

In Budapest at the end of the 19th century, visiting brothels was an important part of night life, including the risk of some venereal disease (v.d.) like syphilis, the in-vogue illness of the age. The expansion of prostitution could be explained with the continuous growth of economy and social development as a consequence of urbanization. Prostitution has grown in innumerable forms, levels and places in order to meet all requirements since this was the only tolerated form of sexuality "out of homes". The police headquarters' duty was to control the observation of rules prescribed for prostitutes...

The combination of high sexually transmitted infection (STI) prevalence and low HIV prevalence has been described as the Indian Ocean paradox. To investigate current epidemiology of HIV and STI in the Comoros, we conducted cross-sectional surveys of a representative sample of the adult population, and convenience samples of female sex workers and male STI patients. Only one (0.025%) of 3990 community participants was HIV-infected, while 142 (3.6%) had treponemal antibodies. Treponemal antibodies were not associated with past genital ulcers, number of sexual partners or adverse outcomes of pregnancies; their prevalence did not increase with age and there was no concordance within couples...

The prevalence of STD continues to increase throughout the world threatening millions of people. However, the actual incidence of STD is not known in most countries. Little work was done to evaluate the size of this problem in Egypt. This study aimed to identify the most prevalent sexually transmitted organisms among patients attending the STD clinic at Cairo Hospital for Skin and Venereal Diseases (El-Haud El-Marsoud). Among the patients attending this clinic complaining of one or more STD or not complaining, but attending the clinic for screening for fear from STD due to their sex behavior, from October 1993, to April 1995, 95 cases were studied...

BACKGROUND: When in 2001 in Germany the new act for control of infectious diseases came into force, mandatory checks for prostitutes were abolished. The consequences of this paradigm shift in STD prevention are being judged controversially even today. The public health department of the city of Cologne, like others, adapted its programme, staff, equipment, and diagnostic procedures to the new requirements. The department for venereal disease control was converted into a walk-in-clinic for STD and now forms part of a comprehensive STD and Aids prevention unit...

This retrospective study on syphilis screening at the sexually transmitted infection (STI) unit of a University Department emphasizes the necessity of a treponemal-specific test as the appropriate screening test. The Venereal Disease Research Laboratory (VDRL) test for syphilis screening may, under certain circumstances, yield positive results in patients not infected with Treponema pallidum, a phenomenon referred to as biological false-positive (BFP) VDRL test. The aim of this study was to determine the frequency of BFP tests in a large sample of sera...

Genital herpes or Herpes Simplex Type 2 Virus (HSC-2) is an incurable, venerable disease. Genital herpes infects more than 1 of 5 adolescents and adults according to the Center for Disease Control. Many people do not know that they have it and are not aware that they may be spreading it to others. Treatment and management of herpes simplex virus has been through pharmacotherapy and patient education. Recent studies have emerged identifying a vaccine for herpes simplex virus. The vaccine has thus far proven to be effective for women...

A study of sexual behaviour of teenagers is essential in the design of an effective intervention programme for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). A questionnaire was administered to 380 men, attending the department for skin and venereal diseases in Belgrade in the period from January 2000 to June 2001. Two groups were compared, 'STD cases' (attending for suspected STDs) and controls (with skin mycotic diseases). In multivariate logistic regression analysis the following risk factors were significantly more frequent in STD cases: sex on the same day as the first encounter (odds ratio (OR)= 2...
