Gonorrhoea is characterised clinically by a profuse purulent discharge from the affected genital site (> 80% in male urethritis, up to 50% in female cervicitis), often accompanied by local pain or discomfort. However asymptomatic infection occurs in 10% of urethral infection, >50% of cervical infection, >90% of pharyngeal and rectal infection. Contiguous spread of the infection can lead to epididymo-orchitis, prostatitis, endometritis and salpingo-oophritis. Haematogenous spread results in disseminated gonococcal infection (DGI).
