Neisseria gonorrhoeae Bacterium : Stock Photo
This scanning electron micrograph depicts four views of Gram-negative Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacteria. Under this highly-magnified view, details of the protective, adhesive matrix, which this colony had secreted are revealed. This molecular matrix consists of polymeric constituents known as the extracellular polymeric substance, or EPS. Typically, these cocci appear as paired diplococci, which have been outlined in color. Some men may have gonorrhea but show no symptoms, however, some have symptoms that appear within 2-5 days, and can take as long as 30 days to appear. These include a burning sensation when urinating, or a white, yellow, or green discharge from the penis, and sometimes swelling of the testicles. In women, the symptoms are often mild, but most have no symptoms. Signs can be so non-specific as to be mistaken for a bladder or vaginal infection. Initial symptoms include a painful or burning sensation when urinating, increased vaginal discharge, or bleeding between periods. Women are at risk of developing serious complications from the infection, regardless of the presence or severity of symptoms. Rectal infection in both men and women may include discharge, anal itching, soreness, bleeding, or painful bowel movements. Rectal infection also may cause no symptoms. Infections in the throat may cause a sore throat, but usually causes no symptoms. Dr. Stephen Kraus
