In a study of 115 males with acute urethritis, the discharge was found positive for gonococci in 33%, for T strain Mycoplasma in 63%, for M. hominis in 16% and for Chlamydia in 51%. In only 9% of the cases were all microbiologic examinations negative. All of the 67 cases examined for cytopathogenic viruses gave negative results. The report also includes the results of examinations of vaginal and endocervical smears from 61 teen aged, promiscuous girls; 11% were found positive for gonococci, 75% for Mycoplasma and 34% for Chlamydia. Trichomonas was also found frequently. In 25% of girls with positive genital Mycoplasma cultures, the same organism was also demonstrated in throat smears. In 2 of 30 girls, Chlamydia was demonstrated in conjunctival scrapings. This is the first report of the occurrence of genital Chlamydia in Israel.
