Molecular epidemiology of Neisseria gonorrhoeae exhibiting decreased susceptibility and resistance to ciprofloxacin in Hawaii, 1991-1999.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Clinically significant resistance to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)-recommended doses of fluoroquinolones (ciprofloxacin and ofloxacin) has been reported for Neisseria gonorrhoeae.
