Abstract

The burden of "multidrug-resistant Neisseria gonorrhoeae" (MDR-NG) was high considering the old definition (26.0%). According to the new definitions, no strain was MDR or extensively drug-resistant. The emergence of resistance to ceftriaxone and cefixime will lead to detection of MDR-NG and may be extensively drug-resistant NG, even according to the new definition.
