Pan Afr Med J. 2014; 17:242.PA

Abstract

Pregnancy is one of conditions that increase the risk of gonococcal arthritis which result from blood dissemination of neisseria gonorrhoeae. A 20-year-old africain female patient (in the second trimester of pregnancy), was admitted to hospital because of fever, asymmetric joint swollen affecting the hands, wrists, left ankle, and right sternoclavicular joint. Laboratory findings (erythrocyte sedimentation rate was 117 mm in first hour, The serum C-reactive protein level was 152 mg/L) the gram stain of genital sample was positif of neisseria gonorrhoeae and trichomonas vaginalis. With antibiotics, outcome of pregnancy was timely and uneventful. Patients should be educated about the mode of transmission of gonorrhea. Sexual partners should also be treated to prevent dissemination and gonococcal re-infection.
