In this quick literature update we review the new recommendations from the CDC for the treatment of gonococcal infections which include:

  • Higher dose ceftriaxone (500 mg IM) or 1 gm IM if ≥150 kg patient
  • No routine azithromycin
  • Preference for doxycycline for co-treatment of presumed chlamydial infection
