Characterization of Neisseria gonorrhoeae strains isolated from patients with conjunctivitis

By Sosa Jorge, Llanes Rafael, Rodríguez Wilder, Gutiérrez Yainelys and Guzmán Daymi


The conjunctivitis produced by Neisseria gonorrhoeae is the less frequently reported clinical form of gonococcal infection. We aim to phenotypically characterize N. gonorrhoeae isolated from conjunctivae sites. A total of six cases of this disease were notified in the Camagüey province, Cuba. All the strains isolated were penicillin-producing, showed the serogroup WI and exhibited the same antimicrobial susceptibility pattern and plasmid profile (2.6-3.2-24.5). The results contribute to the characterization of N. gonorrhoeae strains circulating in our environment
