Error in when to perform a test of cure after gonorrhea treatment. In AAFP News Now: AFP Edition (September 15, 2012, p. 497), the second item on page 498, “CDC Discourages Use of Cefixime in Update on Gonorrhea Treatment,” contained an error in regard to when patients should be tested for cure after gonorrhea treatment. The statement incorrectly implied that all patients with gonorrhea should be tested for cure one week after treatment. However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines indicate that a test of cure should be performed only when a treatment regimen other than the preferred regimen is used, or when patients continue to have symptoms despite treatment. The statement should have read: “Patients with persistent symptoms after treatment, and patients treated with an alternative regimen (i.e., cefixime plus azithromycin or doxycycline; or a single dose of azithromycin) should be tested for cure one week after treatment.” The online version has been corrected.
