Why is this important?

Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by Neisseria gonorrhoeae. It is typically asymptomatic, but easy to treat. However, gonorrhea has developed resistance to antibiotics over the years, complicating treatment. Left untreated, gonorrhea can cause serious and permanent health problems in both women and men. In women, gonorrhea is a common cause of pelvic inflammatory disease. In the United States, the highest reported rates of infection are among sexually active teenagers, young adults, and African Americans.
