In the past few years, the idea that gonococcal arthritis has become a rarity and that only young women and homosexual males are affected has been quite generally accepted. At the University of Illinois Research and Educational Hospitals and the Veterans Administration Westside Hospital, in the past eight years 28 patients with proven or presumptive gonococcal arthritis have been studied. These patients had acute arthritis, of recent onset, which was frequently considered to be acute rheumatic fever. The chronic and destructive type of arthritis previously identified with a gonococcal infection was not seen.
