One aspect of the current epidemic of venereal diseases is the spread of lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV). Formerly confined to the lower echelons of society, it now affects more affluent classes as well. A cluster of four cases was seen in a small college town. Serial LGV complement fixation tests, the most valuable diagnostic tool, may reveal many more cases than reported previously. Early treatment is important. We recommend therapy for all persons sexually exposed to LGV who have any LGV complement fixation test anomaly, whether or not clinical signs develop.
