The following case is reported because it represents a syndrome characterized by fever, joint pains and rash typical of certain gonococcal bacteremias. It was undiagnosed before the laboratory isolated the organism from the blood stream, but it is probable that the case could have been diagnosed from the clinical course alone and proper therapy started at once. Several similar cases have been reported by Wheeler and Cornell,8 Rubenstone,7 Cabot,1 Filler,3 and Keil.5 The following case report is identical in many ways to these reported cases.
A 20-year-old white female was admitted to the University of Wisconsin Student Infirmary
