Antibiotic-resistant strain of gonorrhoea detected in London
This reminder comes as a case of antibiotic-resistant Neisseria gonorrhoeae, the bacteria which causes gonorrhoea, was confirmed in a heterosexual man living in the UK.
This strain of N. gonorrhoeae is resistant to the antibiotic ceftriaxone, the last remaining treatment for gonorrhoea. Fortunately the man has been treated successfully and investigations to identify and limit onward transmission are underway by UKHSA and sexual health clinical teams.
