Abstract
The objective of this study was to analyze the proportion of herpes simplex virus types 1 and 2 (HSV-1 and HSV-2) in genital infections during a 10-year period (2003-2012) among outpatients of a clinic of sexually transmitted disease in Southwestern Finland.
We analyzed prospectively the proportion of HSV-1- or HSV-2-positive culture samples from our sexually transmitted disease clinic outpatients with genital herpes infection during the years 2003 to 2012 and compared the proportions of positive HSV-1 and HSV-2 findings with the age and sex of the patients.
Herpes simplex virus type 2 was typed in 66.4% (557/839) and HSV-1 in 33.6% (282/839) of the patients during the entire study period. The mean age of male patients (26.3 years) with a laboratory-confirmed HSV-1 infection was significantly lower than that in male patients with an HSV-2 infection in 2003 to 2007 (26.3 vs. 32.9 years), with P

Abstract
Rather little is known about the late sequelae of previously detected female Chlamydia infections.
The late sequelae of previous female Chlamydia infections detected during a 15-year period in a south-western Finnish university hospital were surveyed. Hospital records of women with positive laboratory diagnoses of Chlamydia trachomatis as a sign of genital infection were collected from the years 1990-2006 and subsequently linked to known or suspected in-hospital-treated late Chlamydia complications.
The annual number of late complications has increased in proportion to the increasing trend of detected Chlamydia cases. 239 late complications of the total of 4,920 previously detected Chlamydia-positive infections were observed. The most frequent in-hospital-treated complications were disturbances in early pregnancy (n = 72) and low abdominal pain (n = 67). The others were 45 genital tract or pelvic infections, 34 cases of tubal or unknown infertility and 21 complications of late pregnancy and delivery.
The late sequelae of Chlamydia infections need increasing attention in hospitals.

Abstract
The objective of this study was to analyze the proportion of herpes simplex virus types 1 and 2 (HSV-1 and -2) in genital infections during a 9-year period (1994-2002) in a Finnish sexually transmitted disease (STD) clinic population.
We analyzed prospectively the proportion of HSV-1- or -2-positive culture samples from our STD clinic patients with genital herpes during years 1994-2002 and compared the proportions of HSV-1 and HSV-2 findings with the age and gender of the patients.
The proportion of HSV-1 infections increased from 18.7% (39 of 209) in 1994-1996 to 25.9% (52 of 201) in 2000-2002 (P = 0.032). Female patients with genital herpes and laboratory isolation of HSV-1 were 35.9% of the cohort from 1994-1996 and 67.3% of the cohort from 2000-2002. The mean age of male patients with HSV-1 decreased from 29.3 years in 1994-1996 to 24.1 years in 2000-2002 (P = 0.023).
An increase in the proportion of genital infections caused by HSV-1 was found. The increase was mainly the result of the increase in the number of female patients with HSV-1. Male patients acquire genital HSV-1 infection at a younger age than 10 years ago.
