Abstract

One hundred consecutive patients with uncomplicated gonorrhea were treated with 800 mg of cefixime. Follow-up evaluation was obtained for 73 patients, and at that time 71 of the 73 had negative culture results for Neisseria gonorrhoeae. Minimal adverse side effects were reported. Cefixime 800 mg appears to be an excellent treatment for uncomplicated gonorrhea.
