Clinical Information:
Clinical manifestations of Neisseria gonorrhoeae (NG) infections are numerous. In men, acute urethritis presents itself after a 1-10 day incubation period with urethral discharge and dysuria. Only a small proportion of men remain asymptomatic without signs of urethritis. Acute epididymitis is the most common complication, especially in young men. In women, the primary site of infection is the endocervix. There is a high prevalence of co-infections with CT, Trichomonas vaginalis, and bacterial vaginosis; many women remain asymptomatic and therefore do not seek medical care. The predominant symptoms are increased discharge, dysuria, and intermenstrual bleeding. Pelvic inflammatory disease can occur in 10%-20% of women, combined with endometritis, salpingitis, tubo ovarian abscess, pelvic peritonitis, and perihepatitis. Other gonococcal infected sites are the rectum, pharynx, conjunctiva, and to a lesser degree the disease presents itself as disseminated gonococcal infection. Infants from infected mothers can develop conjunctivitis.
 
Reference Value:
Negative
 
Interpretation:
  1. A positive result indicates that specimen is positive for the presence of Neisseria gonorrhoeae DNA and supports a diagnosis of gonorrheal infection.
  2. A negative result does not preclude the presence of NG infection because the detection of N. gonorrhoeae is dependent on the number of organisms present in the specimen and may be affected by specimen collection methods, patient factors (i.e., age, history of STD, presence of symptoms), stage of infection and/or infecting N. gonorrhoeae strains.
  3. Reliable results are dependent on adequate specimen collection, transport, storage and processing procedures.
  4. Though rare, mutations within the highly conserved regions of the genomic DNA of N. gonorrhoeae covered by the test’s primers and/or probes may result in failure to detect the presence of the bacterium.
