Epidemiological and clinical patterns of genital lesions.


:A 5-year study of 668 patients with genital lesions revealed that teenagers and those in the age group of 20 to 40 are most vunerable. The poor, the uneducated and unmarried persons are at high risk. Chancroid and syphilis are the majority of cases. Inguinal bubo, herpes pregenitalis, condylomata acuminata, erosive balanitis and traumatic ulcers were seen less frequently. Most of the genital lesions had the classic clinical features. The findings of this study suggest that the pattern of genital lesions is showing borderline changes.
