Our hospital is a private urological hospital. Currently we have 5 full time and 3 part time clinicians, 80 beds (100 beds: in Aug. 1984) and 23 hemodialyzers available for the patients. It is 5 years and 2 months (as of Dec. 31st 1983) since it was established on Nov. 1st 1978. We report the statistics on the new outpatients who have increased remarkably as years go by during this period. The total number of outpatients was 20,837 (male: 12,926, female: 7,911), and the male to female ratio was 1.6: 1. The outpatients who were referred to by other sources, accounted for 35% of the total number. The urogenital diseases definitely diagnosed numbered 15,800 (76%), those indefinitely diagnosed, 2,261 (11%), normal cases 802 (4%), and diseases other than urogenital 1974 (9%). The number of patients admitted was 4,088, and those operated on as outpatients was 887 (inpatients: 2,598). The major operations for outpatients were circumcision and vasectomy. The age range had a peak in the thirties for males and in the twenties for females. The clinical statistics for the outpatients according to the international disease classification are as follows; Cases of diseases transmitted by sexual contact increased year after year. Non-specific infection accounted for about half of the diseases and urogenital malignant tumor accounted for fewer than 2%. The major diseases of the new outpatients showed the same tendency every year, and they consisted of cystitis (18-22%), prostatitis (13-16%), upper urinary tract stone (10%), benign prostatic hypertrophy (8-10%), and balanoposthitis (3-7%).
