Venereal disease due to homosexual practices has always been found in the venereal disease clinic. The present disproportionate incidence over disease in the heterosexuals may merely represent a hidden reservoir tapped by epidemologic investigation. The finding of coincident granuloma inguinale in two homosexuals is of interest because of its low…
