Gonococcal endocarditis after a threatened abortion. A case report.
J Reprod Med. 1998 Dec; 43(12):1043-5.JR

Abstract

BACKGROUND

Disseminated gonocococcal infection arising during pregnancy is an uncommon occurrence. Gonococcemia following a threatened abortion has not been documented previously.

CASE

Gonococcal arthritis and endocarditis in a 22-year-old primigravida occurred following a midtrimester threatened abortion.

CONCLUSION

Since gonococcemia is thought to be secondary to endocervical disruption, chemoprophylaxis in the gravid cardiac patient after a threatened abortion is recommended.
