This briefing sheet provides an overview on LGV (lymphogranuloma venereum) for sexual health promoters working with gay men, bisexual men and other men who have sex with men (MSM). LGV is a bacterial sexually transmitted infection which, if left untreated, can have serious consequences. LGV used to be very rare in Europe, but there have been a number of outbreaks among MSM since 2003, with more cases recorded in the UK than  inany other European country.
