Between January 2012 and June 2013, 27 sexually transmitted infections were reported in adolescents aged 13-15 years in Catalonia, Spain. In the first half of 2013, there were nine cases of gonorrhoea, while in the same period of 2012, there was one. In June 2013, two gonorrhoea cases aged 13-14 years, linked to a common source through a social network, were reported. The public health response should be adapted to this vulnerable population.
