Conclusion: The present tool for validation of GUD-H can validate only 27% of cases. Overlap of etiologies is mostly common in vaginal discharge syndrome, wherein malignancies and premalignant conditions are overtreated with kits. Validation can be done only in two-third of cases with the available resources. However, syndromic approach provides the opportunity of treating STI without delay.

Rates of gonorrhea and genital chlamydia infection in Australia have been increasing for several years  [1,2]  The following charts were generated by a tool in GIDEON which converts yearly incidence data into rates per 100,000, and combines graphs selected by the user. [3]   Note that trends in the United States parallel those of Australia, with lower rates for individual diseases reported in the latter. Rates (per 100,000)  of Granuloma Inguinale in Australia bear a striking resemblance to those reported in the U.S. a half-century earlier.   References: Berger SA. Infectious Dis...
