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. Gonorrhea, colloquially known as the clap, is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae.

Infection may involve the genitals, mouth, and/or rectum. Infected men may experience pain or burning with urination, discharge from the penis, or testicular pain.

Non-gonococcal urethritis (NGU), inflammation of the urethra, is the most common sexually transmitted illness in men. Urethritis can be infectious or non-infectious. Infectious causes almost always sexually transmitted.

This form of endocarditis develops rapidly, with fever, malaise, and other signs of systemic infection coupled with abnormal cardiac function and even acute heart failure. Subacute endocarditis is caused by less-virulent strains of Streptococcus and is more slowly progressive.

Gonococcus mostly affects mucosal surfaces. However, in some instances, the organism can spread to the bloodstream resulting in disseminated gonococcal infection (DGI) ().It commonly manifests as rash, tenosynovitis, and polyarthralgia, but it can also present as an isolated rash and tenosynovitis without : Saroj Lohani, Salik Nazir, Niranjan Tachamo, Nitin Patel.
