1993 sexually transmitted diseases treatment guidelines. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.MMWR Recomm Rep. 1993 Sep 24; 42(RR-14):1-102.MR
These guidelines for the treatment of patients with sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) were developed by staff members of CDC after consultation with a group of invited experts who met in Atlanta on January 19-21, 1993. Included are new recommendations for single-dose oral therapy for gonococcal infections, chlamydial infections, and chancroid; new regimens for the treatment of bacterial vaginosis (BV) and outpatient management of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID); a new patient-applied medication for treatment of genital warts; and a revised approach to the management of victims of sexual assault. This report includes new sections on subclinical human papillomavirus (HPV) infections and cervical cancer screening for women who attend STD clinics or who have a history of STDs. These recommendations also include expanded sections on the management of patients with asymptomatic human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection; vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC); STDs among patients coinfected with HIV; and STDs among infants, children, and pregnant women.
