Abstract

The prevalence of various microorganisms known to cause nongonococcal urethritis, including herpes simplex virus (HSV), was evaluated. The findings suggest that HSV can be a significant etiological agent in nongonococcal urethritis (NGU) and that the necessary laboratory investigations should be performed for all patients with clinical symptoms of NGU.
