Özet

The aim of this study was to compare single dose oral azithromycin versus seven-day doxycycline in the treatment of non-gonococcal mucopurulent cervicitis (MPC). One hundred and thirty-one women with non-gonococcal MPC were enrolled in a prospective-randomised study to compare the efficacy and safety of a single oral dose of Ig azithromycin and a seven-day course of 100 mg doxycycline twice daily. Clinical examination and culture samples for Chlamydia trachomatis and other microorganisms were performed before and approximately 14 days after starting the treatment.
