Sexually Transmitted Diseases

Men with sexually transmitted diseases may or may not have signs or symptoms. Men with signs and symptoms require thorough workup and appropriate treatment. Claims have been made for misdiagnosing patients with sexually transmitted diseases such as genital herpes when in fact they did not have the disease.[17] Conversely, claims have also been made for misdiagnosing patients with non-infective conditions such as dermatitis when in fact they had sexually transmitted diseases and subsequently went on to unknowingly infect others.[18]
