Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Disseminated gonococcal infection (DGI) is quite a rare condition, especially in the Japanese population; only 10 cases have been reported in case notes and minutes. We describe a man in which Neisseria gonorrhoeae was suspected to have infected the patient through his pharynx. He developed chills, fever, tonsillitis, papules, tenosynovitis and migratory polyarthralgia without genitourinary symptoms. After conducting a literature review, we suggest that being male is a possible risk factor and that blood culture can be used for diagnosing DGI in Japan. DGI should be considered as a diagnosis for patients with fever, dermatitis and joint pain in Japan.
