Bender, Stephen J.
This book is one in a series of contemporary topics in health science for students. The first chapter deals with the behavioral aspects of venereal disease and how the disease has been affected by our changing society. Chapter 2 discusses the magnitude of the problem, presenting various maps and charts. The history of venereal disease and the progress that has been made in its treatment are traced in chapter 3. Chapters 4 and 5 discuss the pathology of syphilis and gonorrhea. Other venereal diseases (chancroid, lymphogranuloma venereum, granuloma inguinale) and venereally related diseases (nonspecific urethritis, vaginitis, cystitis, venereal warts, herpes progenitalis, pubic lice, and scabies) are described in chapters 6 and 7. Chapter eight deals with epidemiological control and describes various control programs. Chapter 9 discusses measures that can be taken to prevent venereal disease. The 30 most often asked questions about venereal disease and their answers are presented in chapter 10. Appendix A contains a summary chart of the various venereal diseases and Appendix B presents a sample test on syphilis and gonorrhea. The book also contains a glossary, index, and a number of photographs showing the various stages of syphilis and gonorrhea. (BD)
