    The clinical features and aetiology of 100 consecutive symptomatic heterosexual male patients with urethritis were studied from March 1994 to August 1994 in the Genito-Urinary Medicine (GUM) Clinic, Kuala Lumpur Hospital. Gonococcal urethritis (GU) was found to be more common (53%) than non-gonococcal urethritis(47%). All patients with GU confirmed microbiologically had clinically evident urethral discharge. Almost half (41%) of the patients with GU developed post-gonococcal urethritis (PGU). The most common organism isolated in PGU was Ureaplasma urealyticum (37%) whilst only 4% had both Chlamydia trachomatis and Ureaplasma urealyticum. Of the 47% of patients with non-gonococcal urethritis (NGU), 50% had no microorganism isolated, 32% had Ureaplasma urealyticum, 7% Chlamydia trachomatis and 11% both Chlamydia trachomatis and Ureaplasma urealyticum.

    An analysis of 105 consecutive patients with chronic hepatitis C at the gastroenterology outpatient's clinic in Hospital Kuala Lumpur was performed. The clinical, laboratory and virological data was prospectively recorded in the case notes and comprised of data on patient characteristics, risk factors, clinical features, laboratory features, virology screen and management. Chronic Hepatitis C cases accounted for 2.1% of the total number of cases seen at this clinic during the entire period. There were 78 (74%) males and 27 (26%) females. The ethnic breakdown consisted of Chinese (44.2%), Malays (39.4%), Indians (15.4%) and others (1%). There was higher male preponderance in all the ethnic groups. The main mode of transmission was blood transfusion comprising 51 patients (48.8%). A total of 35.2% of cases underwent treatment, of which a proportion had interferon monotherapy for 6 or 12 months and a subsequent group of naïve patients and non-responders underwent combination therapy with interferon and ribavarin.

    The results of a prospective study of 94 patients with history of ear, nose or aerodigestive tract foreign bodies were analysed. Sixty six to 94% of patients presented within 24 hours to a primary care doctor, 80 to 94% was referred to the ENT Department within 24 hours and 89 to 93% of patients had their foreign bodies removed within 24 hours. Overall, 58% of aural foreign bodies, 67% nasal foreign bodies and 94% of aerodigestive tract foreign bodies were removed within 48 hours of insertion. As a result of the prompt removal of foreign bodies in the majority of patients, no significant complications occurred. Foreign bodies in the aerodigestive tract tend to present earlier and more promptly removed compared with ear and nose foreign bodies. There was a significantly higher proportion of foreign body in the right ear and nostril compared to the left.

    This study aimed to explore factors associated with patient satisfaction of outpatient medical care in Malaysia. A cross-sectional exit survey was conducted among 340 outpatients aged between 13 and 80 years after successful clinical consultations and treatment acquirements using convenience sampling at the outpatient medical care of Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital (HTAR), Malaysia, being the country's busiest medical outpatient facility. A survey that consisted of sociodemography, socioeconomic, and health characteristics and the validated Short-Form Patient Satisfaction Questionnaire (PSQ-18) scale were used. Patient satisfaction was the highest in terms of service factors or tangible priorities, particularly "technical quality" and "accessibility and convenience," but satisfaction was low in terms of service orientation of doctors, particularly the "time spent with doctor," "interpersonal manners," and "communication" during consultations. Gender, income level, and purpose of visit to the clinic were important correlates of patient satisfaction. Effort to improve service orientation among doctors through periodical professional development programs at hospital and national level is essential to boost the country's health service satisfaction.
