Clinician collected for NAAT/culture/microscopy Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Dual antimicrobial therapy (mainly ceftriaxone 250-500 mg × 1 plus azithromycin 1-2 g × 1) is currently recommended in many countries. Other modules will focus Dual antibiotic treatment is recommended to create a pharmacological barrier to the development of more widespread resistance to treatment. It is continuously updated and integrates the most recent STD Treatment Guidelines. These guidelines for the treatment of common infections caused by N. gonorrhoeae form one of several modules of guidelines for specific STIs. In asymptomatic patients, a self-collected or practitioner -collected rectal swab for NAAT is sufficient.However, if the patient has ano-rectal symptoms, best practice is for the clinician to examine with a proctoscope and collect swab for NAAT and culture. Gonorrhea, colloquially known as the clap, is a sexually transmitted infection caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae.
