Abstract

Data were evaluated to determine the benefit of extragenital screening among men who have sex with men in detecting chlamydia/gonorrhea infections. More than seventy percent of chlamydia infections and >80% of gonorrhea infections would have been missed with urine testing alone in the course of a year. Extragenital testing is critical for identifying sexually transmitted diseases among men who have sex with men.
