The authors studied urethral secretions in 45 males suffering from acute urethritis. Neisseria gonorrhoeae were identified by stainng both with methylene blue and Gram's method and by culture on Tayer-Martin's medium. N. gonorrhoeae was isolated in 16 patients (35.5%). Limulus lysate test was performed on each sample. The results showed a significant correlation between gonococcal urethritis and a positive Limulus test.
