Abstract:

Treatment failure or inability to attain bacteriological sterility in a patient with gonorrhoea has public health implications due to the potential for continued transmission and rapid emergence of antimicrobial resistance. Present study detects the antimicrobial susceptibility pattern of N.gonorrhoeae isolates from 200 patients attending STI clinic. Urethral/endocervical swabs were cultured on selective media and after confirmation the isolates were tested for antimicrobial susceptibility. Prevalence of gonorrhoea in present study was found in 4 % of which, 62.5% isolates were resistant to penicillin, 12.5% were PPNG and 25% isolates were TRNG, 100% QRNG and 37% had high level resistance to ciprofloxacin while, none had elevated MIC to ceftriaxone.


Keywords: Neisseria gonorrhoeae, PPNG,TRNG,QRNG.
