Ugeskr Læger 2019;181:V10180741
In this case report, a 42-year-old man, who had sex with other men, presented with conjunctivitis, which later turned out to be gonorrhoeal conjunctivitis. Gonorrhoeal conjunctivitis is associated with a high risk of severe eye infections, and the possibility of sequelae. It is important to perform swabs for gonorrhoea from all relevant anatomical locations. Through complete microbiological diagnostics and treatment with recommended antibiotics a gonorrhoeal conjunctivitis infection can be treated.
