Epidemiology and treatment of gonorrhea caused by penicillinase producing strains of neisseria gonorrhoeae in fukuoka japan


British Journal of Venereal Diseases 59(1): 37-40
Epidemiology and treatment of gonorrhea caused by penicillinase producing strains of neisseria gonorrhoeae in fukuoka japan
Strains (30) of penicillinase-producing N. gonorrhoeae were detected by a rapid iodometric method among 206 strains isolated from patients with gonorrhea between Jan.-Dec. 1981. Of the 30 patients, 5 of the 9 women were prostitutes and 14 of the 21 men were infected by prostitutes in or around Fukuoka City, Japan, with the exception of 1 who was infected in Taiwan. Treatment with ampicillin or amoxycillin resulted in failure; treatment with spectinomycin was successful.
