Abstract

ABSTRACT: Background: Treatment for rectal lymphogranuloma venereum where doxycycline 100 mg twice daily for 21 days was used—either alone or together with azithromycin 1 g single dose—resulted in microbiological cure of 97%. These data support doxycycline 100 mg twice daily for 21 days as the preferred treatment for rectal lymphogranuloma venereum.
