Objective: To study the clinical features and the state of general immunological reactivity in non-gonococcal urethritis (NGU) in men.

Methods: Examined 100 men between the ages of 20 and 48 years: 75 patients of NGU (main group) and 25 healthy (control group). The average age of the patients was 26.7±1.7 years, and the male of control group was 27.9±1.7 years. Clinical, microscopic, immunological research methods were used, including direct immunofluorescence (DIF), polymerase chain reaction (PCR).

Results: Ureaplasma urealyticum was found in 37 (49.3%) patients, 33 (44%) had Chlamydia trachomatis, 23 (30.7%) had Mycoplasma genitalium, 16 (21.3%) had Trichomonas vaginalis. In 24 (32%) of NGU patients had a mixed infection: in 14 (18.7%) had a combination of two STIs and in 10 (13, 3%) had three infections. In 51 (68%) of patients the process passed in the form of monoinfection. Various complaints (dysuric disorders, pain, discomfort and agglutination of the labium urethra) were presented by 51 (68%) of sick patients. The excretions from the urethra were marked in 46 (61.3%) of patients, reproductive disorders are 3 times less common. Immunological disorders were manifested by a decrease in CD4 and CD8 lymphocytes, PHA, PN and IL-10, increase – IgM, IgG, CIC, TNFα, IL-1β.

Conclusions: The most common cause of NGU is Ureaplasma urealyticum and Chlamydia trachomatis. In most cases NGU proceeds in the form of monoinfection. Subjective and objective symptoms occur in 64% and 59% of patients, respectively. Immunological disorders were detected in 71% of patients.

Keywords: Non-gonogococcal urethritis, direct immunofluorescence, immunoenzyme method , polymerase chain reaction.
