Introduction

Gonorrhoea can on rare occasions present to the

dermatologist with one or two pustules with arthritis of one

or more joints.

Clinical presentation

The lesions are typical, once recognized, and present as

small vesicles with a red halo, which become haemorrhagic

pustules (9.12). They occur in crops or three to four lesions

scattered over the limbs and heal after a few days.

Differential diagnosis

Septicaemia and vasculitis from other causes.

Management

Patients should be referred to a genitourinary medicine

department as coexisting sexually transmitted diseases are

common; antibiotic-resistant strains are very frequent.

Prognosis

The prognosis is good providing it is treated adequately.

Contact tracing is advisable.
