ABDO, Carmita Helena Najjar and OLIVEIRA, Sérgio Ricardo Campanella de. Sexual disorders: demographic and diagnostic profile during one year of a multidisciplinary project. Sao Paulo Med. J. [online]. 1996, vol.114, n.5, pp.1282-1284. ISSN 1516-3180. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-31801996000500009.
Taking into consideration a study published 10 years ago on sexual disturbances of students at the University of São Paulo, the importance of the subject is discussed, along with the creation in 1993 of the Sexuality Project at the university hospital of the University of São Paulo School of Medicine. In its first year, this multidisciplinary project attended 140 patients with sexual dysfunctions (associated or not to other clinical manifestations); the majority were younger than 60 years-old, and 80 percent were male.
