This case of gonorrheal conjunctivitis resulted in partial blindness due to the spread of N. gonorrhoeae bacteria. Gonococci cause both localized infections, usually in the genital tract, and disseminated infections with seeding of various organs. Diagnosis of localized infections depends on Gram-staining, and culture of the discharge.
