Purulent penile ulcers of patients in Singapore.

Abstract

In 80 patients with painful purulent penile ulcers who attended the outpatient service of Middle Road Hospital in Singapore, Haemophilus ducreyi was isolated from 18 (22%), herpes simplex virus type 2 from nine (11%), and Neisseria gonorrhoeae from eight (10%). Primary pathogens were not isolated from 45 (57%) men. Painful purulent penile ulcers were more common in uncircumcised men, and patients had often acquired the disease after sexual intercourse with prostitutes in Singapore.
