The authors report on their experiences gained at the sexually transmitted disease clinic they established at the First Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology of Semmelweis Medical University. A total of 456 patients presenting with signs and symptoms of lower genital tract infection have been examined in one year. The investigation of patients included aerobic and anaerobic culture of vaginal bacteria, vaginal smear and the identification of sexually transmitted Chlamydia trachomatis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Mycoplasmatales and Gardnerella vaginalis. The authors conclude that a sexually transmitted disease clinic is appropriate to contribute to the prevention of horizontal and vertical spread of the sexually transmitted bacterial infections.
