Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A patient with an abscess in the oral cavity caused by Neisseria gonorrhoeae is presented. The suspected gonococcal cause was confirmed by the presence of gonococci in smears of material evacuated from the abscess and the growth of bacteria in a modified Thayer-Martin culture medium. This represents, to our knowledge, the first reported case of oral cavity abscess due to N. gonorrhoeae.
