Misdiagnosis of Gonorrhea

Gonorrhea: Misdiagnosis

A prompt diagnosis and treatment of gonorrhea infection increases the chances of preserving fertility and preventing other complications, such as pelvic inflammatory disease, prostatitis, epididymitis, ectopic pregnancy, and neonatal ophthalmia.

Gonorrhea is simple to diagnose, but a diagnosis can be missed or delayed because there are often no symptoms in the earliest, most curable stage. When symptoms do occur, they can be similar to symptoms of certain other diseases, such as urinary tract infection and chlamydia. Because of these factors, it is important to have regular medical care throughout a lifetime in order to maximize the chances of early diagnosis and treatment.
