Abstract

Aztreonam, 1 g intramuscularly, was compared with spectinomycin, 2 g intramuscularly, for uncomplicated gonorrhea. There were no failures with either drug. For aztreonam, there were 26 urethral, 3 rectal, and 3 endocervical sites that were infected. Aztreonam in a single dose of 1 g intramuscularly is satisfactory therapy for uncomplicated urethral gonorrhea in men and may be effective for rectal and endocervical infection as well.
