Abstract

OBJECTIVES: Neisseria gonorrhoeae infections are the second most commonly reported disease in the United States and cause significant morbidity. We describe the prevalence of gonorrhea in a large sample of men tested for gonorrhea and Chlamydia trachomatis in Baltimore, Denver, San Francisco, and Seattle. METHODS: Gonorrhea prevalence was measured among 17,712 men tested in a variety of non-sexually transmitted disease (STD) clinic venues using urine-based nucleic acid amplification tests. RESULTS: Among 16,850 asymptomatic men, prevalence ranged from 0% to 1.5% by city (P = 0.20): Baltimore 1.3%, Denver 1.5%, San Francisco 1.5%, and Seattle 0%. Among 862 symptomatic men, the gonorrhea prevalence varied from 0.0% to 28.3% by city (P
