These recommendations specify appropriate treatment, including dosage of antibiotics for uncomplicated gonococcal infections in adults, infections with penicillinase-producing Neisseria gonorrhoeae, acute salpingitis, acute epididymitis, disseminated gonococcal infections, and gonococcal infections in pediatric patients (including neonatal infections). Special attention is given to important diagnostic considerations, relation of gonococcal infections to concomitant venereal infections, treatment of sexual partners, follow-up, treatment failures, treatments not recommended, allergic problems in treatment, needs for hospitalization, and prevention of gonococcal ophthalmia. Attention is called to the importance of using no less than the recommended dosages of antibiotics.
