Gonococcal arthritis caused by auxotype P in a man with HIV infection

, : Gonococcal arthritis caused by auxotype P in a man with HIV infection. Genitourinary Medicine 66(2): 91-92

The development of gonococcal arthritis is reported in a man with HIV infection and CDC Stage IVC2 disease. The diagnosis of disseminated Neisseria gonorrhoeae was facilitated by microbiological examination of a joint aspirate. The auxotype identified by culture was moderately resistant to penicillin, a characteristic which is highly unusual for an organism causing disseminated gonococcal infection. This case serves as an example of the role of HIV infection in the modification of host response to common pathogens and the need for clinicians to modify their management of disseminated gonococcal infection especially in immunosuppressed persons.

The occurrence of genetic polymorphisms of drug metabolism means that populations contain subgroups (phenotypes) that differ sharply in their abilities to effect a number of metabolic reactions. Because of this, major interphenotype differences oc...
