dc.description.abstractDuring the period January 1985 to December 1985, 537 consultations were undertaken at the Special Clinic at Addington Hospital, 483 of these were specifically for venereal disease. The male to female ratio was 2.2:1. The majority of the patients treated were Coloureds. Most of the patients were in the age group of 20-35 years. The majority of the patients were unemployed. Gonorrhoea was diagnosed in 25.13% of the patients, followed by latent syphilis 19.52%. Chancroid was the commonest cause of genital ulceration and was diagnosed in 10.4% of the study population. N. Gonorrhoea was isolated in 42 patients; 40.5% of the isolates were resistant to penicillin, 66.6% to cotrimaxozole and 30.9% to ampicillin. The organism was sensitive to chloromycetin, erythromycin and tetracycline in most cases. All the penicillin resistant strains were sensitive to spectinomycin.en
