Sexually Transmitted Diseases Treatment Guidelines, 2015

Infectious Disease PGY1 PGY2 PGY3 PGY4

New guideline by MMWR in June 2015, reviewing most important topics in STD. This guideline is very comprehensive and answers several critical questions regarding current and future therapy and focuses on STD.

Mycoplasma genitalium, is more common than N. gonorrhoeae but less common than C. trachomatis. in case of Urethritis and Cervicitis, the 7-day doxycycline regimen recommended for treatment  of urethritis is largely ineffective against  M. genitalium  with  a median cure rate of approximately 31% . The  1-g single dose of azithromycin was significantly more effective against  M. genitalium  than doxycycline in two randomized  urethritis treatment trials, and is preferred over  doxycycline. However, resistance to azithromycin appears to  be rapidly emerging.
