Abstract

Trends in reported sexually transmitted diseases in Wisconsin men mimic the trends in national reporting. Chlamydia trachomatis, Neiserria gonorrheae, and Herpes simplex virus are the most frequently reported conditions. Newer diagnostic techniques based on the amplification of DNA for Neiserria gonorrheae and Chlamydia trachomatis provide health care providers with a more reliable and rapid diagnosis. In the current health care environment, reporting of sexually transmitted diseases among men occurs at a lower frequency than among women. Screening programs for Wisconsin men outside of the traditional setting are few. The most common sexually transmitted diseases are reviewed, with emphasis on newer developments. New treatment guidelines have been issued by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (2002). Wisconsin health care providers can assist in the appropriate reporting of sexually transmitted diseases to the Wisconsin Division of Public Health.
