SOSA, Jorge et al. Characterization of Neisseria gonorrhoeae strains isolated from patients with conjunctivitis. Mem. Inst. Oswaldo Cruz [online]. 2000, vol.95, n.6, pp.853-854. ISSN 0074-0276.

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.

Palabras clave : Neisseria gonorrhoeae; conjunctivitis; characterization; Cuba.
