Gonococcal Infection, Bacteriaemic Form

Disseminated gonococcal infection that occurs in about 1-3 per cent of cases and may cause polyarthralgia, fever, chills, and skin lesions. The latter usually appear as small erythematous or haemorrhagic papules, petechiae, or vesiculopustules on a haemorrhagic and, at times, necrotic base.They heal spontaneously after a few days. In the rare septicaemic forms the patient is gravely ill, with high fever, and meningitis or endocarditis may occur.
