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. DOI: 10.1097/QLQ.0000000000000578
