Venereal disease in a war environment: incidence and management.

Abstract

The improved control over most infectious disease does not extend to venereal infections, and these now provide the major medical problem encountered in wartime. This factor should be recognized when staff and facilities are being provided for wartime medical services. Unique problems of management of both physical and psychological illness may result from promiscuity in a foreign land during war, and specialist venereologists are as necessary as surgeons and physicians.
