New & dangerous VD
« on: July 31, 2007, 02:48:49 PM »
reading a gay blog from my country I came across some infromation about a new & potentially lethal STI passed primarily though anal sex, the title of the blog post was "AIDS: the sequal?". He pasted an article from a local newspaper but I can't translate all of it just give some hightlights

This disease, called Tropical Bubo or LYMPHOPATHIA VENEREUM started in the tropics but there are already cases diagnosed in Israel and the article says there was cases diagnosed in NYC and primarily in gay men. Most docs are not aware of it and do not know how to diagnose it.

The 1st cases in the west were diagnosed last year in the USA, and so far several hundered were reported to the american health ministry. Becuase many cases are asymptomatic and the tests for it are comples, the estimation is a few thousands who are undiagnosed in the US.

apparently is is a kind of chalmidia with a different manifestation than the common chlamidiya and not all tests can seperate normal chalmidiya from this disease which makes it hard to diagnose, it is manifested if at all in a rectal inflamation icluding pain and a bloody diarreah, which might mislead docs into diagnosing it as a stomach infection. The concern is that patients will go to proctologists or gastrointernologists, who are mostly unaware of the disease. The disease is treatable with antiobiotics for 3 weeks, but only if it is diagnosed in the beginning, otherswise its reprecussions remain: from a small ulcer in the gential area which is often overlooked, it can develop into an enlragment of the limph nodes in the crotch area, block arteries and veins and create a bloaking esp in the cervical (? well the area under the hips basically) area, and a narrowing of the rectum. in difficult cases the infection can spread and cause infection to different organs including the brain.

 i can't translate the whole article but I seached for this online and found a couple of links.

LGV in the west isn't actually that new - in the UK it first emerged in 2004: http://info.tht.org.uk/lgv/ - it certainly doesn't sound pretty...
