Meaning of gonorrhea

gonorrhea means: [gahn-uh-ree'-uh] a specific infection caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae, commonly called gonococcus. It is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases. The bacterium can primarily infect only certain parts of the body: the urethra, uterine cervix, rectum, throat, and eyes. The vast majority of cases are acquired by sexual contact. Initial symptoms of gonorrhea appear about 2 to 10 days after infection, although 10 percent of men and as many as 80 percent of women show no symptoms at all. The urethra is the site most infected in men and symptoms include burning urination and a penile discharge. In women, gonorrhea most often attacks the reproductive tract but can also infect the urethra, rectum, throat, and eyes. Symptoms may include burning urination and a vaginal discharge. Infections in the throat or rectum almost never produce symptoms, and infection of the eyes results in pain, redness, and discharge. If the infection is untreated in women, it can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease, and subsequently some of these women have difficulty becoming pregnant. The disease may result in infection of the joints (arthritis). During birth, babies may contract gonococcal eye disease from an infected mother. Silver nitrate drops placed into the eyes of newborns kill the gonococcus if present. Antibiotics given to both partners have traditionally been the preferred treatment for gonorrhea. However, recent studies have found that penicillin- and tetracycline-resistant gonorrhea increased alarmingly from 1988 to 1989. Treatment is moving toward the use of more expensive drugs, such as ceftriaxone, to treat the disease. New drugs and a possible vaccine are being developed to combat the disease.
