AbstractA preliminary report on the evaluation of Crude Frei's Test' has been presented. In all cases of lymphogranuloma venereum where auto-inoculation was done the test was strongly positive. So in cases of lymphogranuloma venercum when even a little pus can be aspirated auto-inoculation is a reliable method of diagnosis. This preliminary report reveals that the "Crude-Test" is reliable and has the virtue of being simple. This test can be performed in any venereology clinic without any risk of local or general complications. In this series suspected cases of LVG in group (II) showed positive skin reaction when injected with the pus from other cases of LGV. So preserving the pus from cases of LGV and using it as an antigen will go a longway in the diagnosis of LGV and non-availability of pure antigen is no longer a deterent in the diagnosis of lymphogranuloma venereum.
