N. gonorrhoeae can spread through the bloodstream and infect other parts of the body, including the joints, resulting in disseminated gonococcal infection (DGI), which occurs in 0.5% to 3% of patients infected with N. gonorrhoeae.6,7 The probability of the organism spreading to the joints and other tissues depends upon host, microbial, and possibly immune factors (see Risk factors for DGI). Presenting signs and symptoms may include fever, chills, malaise, polyarthralgia of small and/or large. Gonorrhea is the second most commonly reported notifiable condition in the United States. Infrequently, Neisseria gonorrhoeae can cause disseminated gonococcal infection (DGI).

Disseminated gonococcal Infection (DGI), is a rare complication associated with Neisseria gonorrhoeae, and its incidence is 0.5-3%. It typically manifests as rash, tenosynovitis, polyarthralgia.

Abstract. Gonococci do not readily cause disseminated infection in mice. To simulate some of the conditions leading to disseminated gonococcal infection in women, we suspended gonococci in mucin plus hemoglobin and studied the development of gonococcal bacteremia Disseminated gonococcal infection (DGI) is the most common cause of acute arthritis among young, sexually active adults. It occurs in 1-3% of all gonococcal infections and is most frequently associated with asymptomatic primary infections .It is a manifestation of acute systemic gonococcal infection and characterized by the spread of the gonococcus from mucosal sites to distant organs such as skin, joints, bones, meninges, or cardiac tissue, causing severe inflammatory responses In classic disseminated gonococcal infection (DGI), the patient presents with the triad of skin lesions, polyarthralgias, and tenosynovitis. Most patients are febrile and bacteremic. The skin lesions can be macular, maculopapular, or pustular (Figure 1). They tend to occur in the extremities and occasionally on the trunk
Disseminated gonococcal infection complicated 0.4%-3% of gonococcal infections during the 1970-80s.1, 2 Although rates declined thereafter,1, 2 a recent resurgence has been attributed to oral-genital sexual practices among men who have sex with men (MSM).2 The classic presentation is a triad of dermatitis, arthralgias and tenosynovitis.2. Gonococcemia (also known as Disseminated gonococcal infection) is a condition characterized by a hemorrhagic vesiculopustular eruption, bouts of fever, and arthralgia or actual arthritis of one or several joints
Disseminated Gonococcal Infection Case Reporting CDC has received increasing reports of disseminated gonococcal infection (DGI), an uncommon, but severe, complication of untreated gonorrhea Disseminated gonococcal infection can present with dermatitis, migratory arthritis, and tenosynovitis [ 15 ]. In this case, the patient presented with migratory arthritis and left-hand tenosynovitis DGI is uncommon and thought to occur in 0.5-3% of untreated gonorrhea cases. Cultures from disseminated sites of infection are often negative and mucosal sites of infection (e.g. urogenital, rectal, or pharyngeal) are often asymptomatic and not tested before empiric antimicrobial treatment is started despite having a higher diagnostic yield We herein report the microbiological features of a Neisseria gonorrhoeae strain isolated from an immunocompetent patient with disseminated gonococcal infection (DGI). The strain expressed the IA/IB serovar; was resistant to penicillin, tetracycline, and ciprofloxacin; and had presumably been acquired in Southeast Asia. To date, this is the first case reported in our country of DGI due to an.
It has also been recently reported that, although rarely, administration of eculizumab may result in disseminated gonococcal infection (DGI). We report here a case in which a young patient who had used eculizumab for PNH developed DGI Disseminated gonococcal infection.

Disseminated gonococcal infection is rare, affecting 0.4 to 3 percent of patients with gonorrhea,4 but it is the most common cause of infectious arthritis in sexually active, previously healthy. Disseminated gonococcal infection is most common in young women but may develop in sexually active persons of any age. The diagnosis often is not suspected because the initial mucosal infection is frequently asymptomatic, providing no clue to an infectious etiology. Prompt identification and treatment are essential to prevent complications such. Disseminated gonococcal infection is rare, affecting 0.4 to 3 percent of patients with gonorrhea, 4. but it is the most common cause of infectious arthritis in sexually active This patient was found to have both acute hepatitis B and disseminated gonococcal infection (DGI). Hepatitis B associated arthritis is usually a symmetric polyarthritis that most commonly affects the proximal interphalangeal joints, knees, and ankles. It can have an additive or migratory pattern and is self-limited Gonococcal infections in postpubertal females are commonly asymptomatic. Complications such as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) and disseminated gonococcal infection (DGI) occur more often in females, probably because of delays in diagnosis and treatment. A major difficulty in the treatment of gonococcal infections is the increasing incidence.
Disseminated Gonococcal Infection Treatment. In most cases of disseminated gonoccocal infection, antibiotic therapy is successful and rewarding. It is in the best interest of the patient to get hospitalized so that the response to the antibiotic can be observed. If there is formation of pus in the joint, it has to be drained disseminated gonococcal infection (DGI). The usual presentation of DGI is rash, polyarthralgia, and tenosynovitis. We present the case of a 23-year-old female who presented to our hospital with pustular rash and tenosynovitis of hand and was sent home on Augmentin. Her symptoms worsened despite treatment an Background: Disseminated gonococcal infection in pregnancy is rare with the incidence of 0.04-0.09% in pregnant women. Its most common manifestation is arthritis. Case: A 38-year-old woman, G1P0, 36+ weeks pregnancy came to hospital with decreased fetal movement.

The epidemiology, bac This syndrome is a relatively common manifestation of disseminated gonococcal infection (DGI) and is the presenting feature of 60% adults with DGI [1-3]. Effective treatment is currently available for several sexually transmitted infections (STIs); however, antimicrobial resistance (AMR), particularly in N. gonorrhoeae, has increased rapidly in.
Disseminated gonococcal infection is characterised by skin lesions such as papules, erythema, and blisters, whereas petechiae and fulminant purpura are seen with meningococcal infection. Multidrug-resistant gonococci have become a serious issue (eg, resistance to azithromycin and ceftriaxone), and antibiotic options might be minimal, as with.

Disseminated gonococcal infection. The symptoms of DGI vary greatly from patient to patient. By the time the symptoms of DGI appear, many patients no longer have any localized symptoms of mucosal infection. The classic presentation of DGI is an arthritis-dermatitis (tenosynovitis) syndrome.

Disseminated gonococcal infection is a condition in which a common sexually transmitted organism, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, spreads through the bloodstream and causes a variety of systemic symptoms. Neisseria gonorrhoeae is the organism that causes gonorrhea, a sexually transmitted infection that causes pain with urination and purulent discharge. Gonococcal isolates cultured from patients with disseminated gonococcal infections (DGI) show resistance to serum bacteriolysis, are very sensitive to penicillin, and have c Neisseria gonorrhoeae infects superficial membranes of the eyes, oropharynx, genital tract, and rectum prior to dissemination Gonococcus typically affects the mucosal surfaces but in rare cases can spread to bloodstream causing disseminated gonococcal infection (DGI). The usual presentation of DGI is rash, polyarthralgia, and tenosynovitis. We present the case of a 23-year-old female who presented to our hospital with pust
INTRODUCTION. Disseminated gonococcal infection (DGI) results from bacteremic spread of the sexually transmitted pathogen, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, which can lead to a variety of clinical symptoms and signs, such as arthritis or arthralgias, tenosynovitis, and multiple skin lesions. This topic will discuss the epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, and treatment of DGI .
