oa Central African Journal of Medicine - Sexually transmitted disease in Rhodesia

Volume 22, Issue 10
  • ISSN : 0008-9176

Syphilis and gonorrhea have attracted most attention, but of increasing interest are non-specific urethritis, trichomoniasis, genital candidosis, and, in tropical areas, chancroid (soft sore).

This is part one in the series.
