      history, diagnosis, clinical features, management. Gonorrhoea 1. BY DR. BHAGWAN DASS 2. Gonorrhea (Greek, “flow of seed”) is attributed to Galen ( A.D.), who is said to have believed that urethral exudate in males with gonorrhea was semen. In , Neisseria gonorrhoeae was demonstrated by Neisser in stained smears of urethral, vaginal, . This work develops a pattern recognition system for the diagnosis of gonorrhea disease using genetic algorithm. Data on gonorrhea symptoms are collected and used in .

    Gonorrhea testing (usually nucleic acid amplification test, NAAT) is used to screen for, diagnose, and verify successful treatment of infections caused by the bacteria Neisseria gonorrhoeae. Gonorrhea is a common sexually transmitted disease (STD) that can be serious if not treated. 42% of diagnosed gonorrhea is in men who have sex Canada: Between and , the rate of reported cases of gonorrhea increased by %, from to per , (7). Between and , the overall reported rates of gonorrhea were consistently higher in males than in females (7). In , people under 30 years of age accounted forFile Size: KB.

    Gonorrhea is a common sexually transmitted disease caused by the bacterium, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, which can be transmitted during vaginal, anal, or oral sex, and at birth to a newborn. Clinical Description. A sexually transmitted infection commonly manifested by urethritis, cervicitis, proctitis, salpingitis, or pharyngitis.   Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) that can infect both men and women. It can cause infections in the genitals, rectum, and throat. It is a very common infection, especially among young people ages years. How is gonorrhea spread? You can get gonorrhea by having vaginal, anal, or oral sex with someone who has gonorrhea.

Mich Med. Nov;70(28) Criteria and techniques for the diagnosis of gonorrhea. [No authors listed] PMID: [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE]. Once urine-based diagnosis of gonorrhea and chlamydia becomes well established, it may be possible to perform evaluations for uncomplicated genitourinary complaints without using a speculum.

View. Because of the serious social and medicolegal consequences of misdiagnosing gonorrhea or misidentifying strains of N. gonorrhoeae, the CDC has recommended criteria for reporting diagnoses of gonorrhea (15). Three levels of diagnosis are defined on the basis of clinical findings or the results of laboratory diagnostic tests.

Some Canadian laboratories are using nucleic acid techniques concurrently with culture for the diagnosis of gonorrhea. Nucleic acid methods are suitable for detecting N gonorrhoeae in specimens that may not contain viable organisms due to long transportation time or exposure to extreme temperature conditions.

contributors to this Criteria and techniques for the diagnosis of gonorrhea book are a group of clinicians and educators who undertook the task of learning about DSM-5 in order to help others self-educate.

There is no com-mentary or politics about diagnosis in this study guide. The contributors have gra-ciously donated the proceeds from this book to a charitable foundation.

Screenings for Adolescents and Young Adults Under 25 Years of Age: Annual chlamydia and gonorrhea screenings should be done for women under age 25 as well as older women who are at risk.

Screening for syphilis, HIV, chlamydia, and Hepatitis B should be given to all pregnant women, and gonorrhea screening for pregnant women at risk.

Gonococcal infections occur only in humans. The source of the organism is exudate and secretions from infected mucosal surfaces; N gonorrhoeae is communicable as long as a person harbors the organism. Transmission results from intimate contact, such as sexual acts, parturition, and very rarely, household exposure in prepubertal children.

GONORRHEA DIAGNOSIS. Testing for gonorrhea is usually done in a doctor's office or clinic with a swab of the vagina or cervix (in women), or urine sample (in men). Testing for oral or rectal gonorrhea can also be performed with a swab. Some public clinics can test for gonorrhea from a swab of the urethra in men and provide immediate results.

Gonorrhea can also infect your eyes, throat, or joints. You can also be infected but have no symptoms. Gonorrhea Complications. If you don’t get treatment, gonorrhea.

Inthe diagnosis rates for gonorrhoea among adults aged 20 to 24 years in the UK were perfor men and perfor women. Resistance to one or more antimicrobial agent is reported in more than one quarter of isolates.

Co-infection with Chlamydia trachomatis is reported in 10% to 40% of people with gonorrhoea in the US and. Three laboratory techniques used when diagnosing gonorrhea include: a Gram stain, gene detection, and a lab culture. The staining sample test tends to work better when diagnosing the condition in men than in women, and the gene test is more accurate than culturing the bacteria.
