Abstract:

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in particular Genital Ulcer Diseases (GUDs), have been associated with an increased risk for infection and transmission. Genital Ulcer Diseases (GUDs) can be caused by a number of sexually transmitted infections. Patients with GUD are at high risk for concurrent HIV infection. Blood samples were collected from a total of 260 patients. Diagnostic tests were performed using specific kits as per manufacturer’s instructions. Out of 260 patients, 216 (83.08%) patients were under herpetic category whereas 44 (16.92%) patients were non-herpetic. Overall seroprevalence of HSV-2, syphilis and HIV in this study was 29.62%, 16.15% and 5.38% respectively. Individuals from rural areas and males were infected predominantly with GUD cases (28.84% & 36.92% respectively). The present study reveals that herpetic cases are predominant over the non herpetic cases in GUDs with HSV-2 as the major infective agent. In non-herpetic cases, syphilis was more predominant. Incidences of HIV were more in mixed infections, further conferring those STIs, specifically GUDs can play a major role in HIV infection and / or transmission.
