New Yorkers diagnosed with rare sex disease

NEW YORK : Two New York men have been diagnosed with a rare sexually transmitted disease that has recently been making inroads among gay and bisexual men in Europe.

The disease, a rare form of chlamydia known as lymphogranuloma venereum, or LGV, can cause serious illness, permanent disfigurement and fuel the spread of AIDS, according to New York health officials.

"LGV is a serious condition and its emergence in New York City reflects continuing high levels of unsafe sexual activity among men who have sex with men," said the city's health commissioner Thomas Frieden.

"It is also critical for gay and bi-sexual men to minimize risky sexual behaviors and practice safer sex ... to help prevent the spread of this illness and HIV/AIDS," Frieden said.

The federal Centers for Disease Control has confirmed six recent cases in the United States, including the two in New York, three in San Francisco and one in Atlanta.

Previously prevalent only in less-developed countries in Africa, Southeast Asia and the Caribbean, LGV has recently gained a foothold in Europe, with the Netherlands reporting more than 60 cases in 2004, compared to fewer than five cases in recent years.

And they'll be very quick to try and say that "it's not a gay disease."

Is this a plot by the heterosexual white man to rid society of all undesirables?

Must think they can get more federal dollars (pork) out of a new disease which CAN infect all but is 90% in the homosexual practitioner circles.

I sometimes think being able to brag about having the newest disease among homosexuals is similar to having the newest model car or coolest mobile link among straights.

Gee, brought from the Third World, probably by vacationers, and now cases in the three biggest gay centers in the US. Could this be - gasp! - a Gay Disease?

Mr Frieden must be a homophobe. This disease can strike anyyone, completely at random. [sarcasm off]

New Yorkers diagnosed with "rare sex" disease

What kind of a disease causes them to get sex only rarely? Are they paralyzed in the pelvis or something? ;-)

a tid bit from the internet:

Background: Lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV) is an uncommon sexually transmitted disease (STD) caused by Chlamydia trachomatis. This condition is characterized by extremely painful inguinal lymphadenopathy.

Pathophysiology: C trachomatis is an obligate intracellular bacterium. Of the 15 known clinical serotypes, only the L1, L2, and L3 serotypes cause LGV. These serotypes are more virulent and invasive compared to other chlamydial serotypes. Infection occurs after direct contact with the skin or mucous membranes of an infected partner. The organism does not penetrate intact skin. The organism then travels by lymphatics to regional lymph nodes, where they replicate within macrophages and elicit systemic disease. While transmission is predominantly sexual, cases of transmission through laboratory accidents, fomites, and nonsexual contact have been reported.

LGV occurs in 3 stages. The first stage, which is often unrecognized, consists of a rapidly healing, painless genital papule or pustule. The second stage, consisting of painful inguinal lymphadenopathy, occurs 2-6 weeks after the primary lesion. The third stage, which is more common in women, may occur many years after the original infection and is characterized by proctocolitis.

And they'll be very quick to try and say that "it's not a gay disease."

And like AIDS they'll demand billions be spent finding a cure so that they can continue practicing their "lifestyle" consequence free.

"minimize risky sexual behaviors?" Are you kidding me? The whole gay lifestyle is irresponsible and risky. Look at the damn statistics; gays are not monogamist people.

Well, aids didn't deter them. Why would this new one? There seems to be a cure for this one so that they can become even more promiscuous and deviant.

From CDC website desribing initial group of men studied in the Netherlands - really groovy group of guys!

Preliminary evaluation determined that all the patients were white and that, among the 30 MSM whose HIV status was known, 23 (77%) were HIV positive. Other preliminary findings suggested that concurrent sexually transmitted infections were prevalent and that the majority had participated in casual sex gatherings (e.g., "leather scene" parties) and unprotected anal intercourse or other unprotected anal penetration (e.g., fisting) during the 12 months before onset of symptoms.

From same website, a compilation of common symptoms:

Only one patient, with onset of illness in April 2003, had symptoms usually associated with LGV (i.e., inguinal adenopathy [buboes] and a painful genital ulcer) (3); all other patients had gastrointestinal symptoms (e.g., bloody proctitis with a purulent or mucous anal discharge and constipation).

This disease is curable with antibiotics. Let me be the first to predict that because of the nature of the homosexing population, this bug will rapidly become antibiotic resistant, meaning it may be untreatable in the not-too-distant future.

Thanks for the find, kipita:

While transmission is predominantly sexual, cases of transmission through laboratory accidents, fomites, and nonsexual contact have been reported.

For those who don't know, spread through "fomites" means you can get it off the toilet seat, a dirty towel, or any other such object. This is much different from HIV which is blood-borne. It's a scary world out there.

what really gets me most about all, or any of this is, it was a goal of the communists to see it all happen..

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."

Communist Puked it out, and the hippies drank it down, then became senators

I can see the tax dollars being spent right now.

Wonder what color ribbon they'll choose?

When's the first march on the capital?

When will they blame Bush for ignoring this?

Who will perform at the first benefit concert?

How long before Mikhael Moore will make a "movie"?

Will Katie report on this next Monday?

Wonder if their lifestyles will ever come into question in the MSM? Naaaaaaaah...

The world has always had STDs that mutated from one form to a slightly different one.

They are referred to as NSU. Non specific urethritis.
