Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report New Zealand's first two cases of anorectal lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV). Although infection in these cases was probably acquired off-shore, the cases are reported to demonstrate the need to be vigilant to the possibility of LGV when men who have sex with men present with symptoms of proctitis. Investigation and management of LGV is discussed.
