OBJECTIVES: To assess, in men who were infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and who identified themselves as having had sex with men; the nasopharyngeal prevalence of Neisseria gonorrhoeae, N meningitidis, Corynebacterium diphtheriae, and candida species; oral sexual behaviour; the relation between oral flora and oral sexual behavior. METHOD: Nasopharyngeal swabs were taken from HIV seropositive men for culture. The men were also asked to complete a self administered…

Carriage of Neisseria meningitidis in Men Who Have Sex With Men Presenting to Public Sexual Health Clinics, New York City
TLDR
Oral sex and the number of recent kissing partners contribute to Nm carriage in MSM, a study among men who have sex with men attending sexual health clinics suggests.
Molecular characterisation and antibiotic susceptibility of meningococcal isolates from healthy men who have sex with men
TLDR
Serogroup B meningococcal carriage identified from oral and anal specimens among healthy men who have sex with men (MSM) was the most frequent serogroup identified in this study.
A Review of Global Epidemiology and Response to Meningococcal Disease Outbreaks among Men Who Have Sex with Men, 2001–2018
TLDR
The global epidemiology and public health response to meningococcal disease outbreaks among MSM is summarized and questions regarding possible unique risk factors in this population of men are raised.
Risk factors for community-acquired bacterial meningitis: men who have sex with men (MSM) as a population at risk for meningococcal nasopharyngeal carriage
TLDR
A review recently published in this journal described the risk factors for community acquired bacterial meningitis, and people with HIV infection in HIV-positive communities are described.

TLDR
In the compromised host, infection can be more aggressive and widespread locally, be caused by opportunistic pathogens, and be disseminated hematogenously from or to the skin.
An unusual cause of pelvic inflammatory disease due to Neisseria meningitidis.
TLDR
The importance of the definitive diagnosis of Neisseria to a species level is underscored for public health issues, appropriate contact tracing, as well as potential psychosocial implications.
Meningococcemia in a patient coinfected with hepatitis C virus and HIV.
We describe the first reported case of meningococcemia in a patient coinfected with hepatitis C virus and HIV. Hypocomplementemia secondary to hepatic dysfunction may have enhanced the patient's
Meningococcal infection in patients with the human immunodeficiency virus and acquired immunodeficency syndrome
TLDR

Anogenital Non-Gonococcal Neisseriae: Prevalence and Clinical Significance
TLDR
Within each patient group the prevalence and incidence of anogenital NGN were similar at the beginning and end of the study period indicating that levels have not been influenced by the advent of AIDS.
Urethritis Due to Neisseria Meningitidis in a London Genitourinary Medicine Clinic Population
TLDR
In the study population the prevalence of N. meningitidis infection was low and restricted to homosexual men; however, it may be associated with symptoms.
Seroepidemiologic aspects of Neisseria meningitidis in homosexual men.
TLDR
Among 383 homosexual men attending either a venereal disease clinic or a community screening clinic meningococci were cultured from specimens obtained from 35.0% of all the subjects, and with similar frequency in the two groups, and the serogroups and serotypes were characteristic of those commonly found in nasopharyngeal specimens from other asymptomatic carriers.
Prevalence and site-pathogen studies of Neisseria meningitidis and N gonorrhoeae in homosexual men.
TLDR
Prevalence and site-pathogen studies of pathogenic Neisseria were conducted in 815 homosexual men over a 12-month period, finding that N meningitidis urethral isolates were associated with Urethral discharge in five of six patients, and N meneditidis in the oropharynx or rectum was not usually associated with clinical illness.
Pharyngeal Flora in a Sexually Active Population
TLDR
Sexual orientation and oro-genital contact influences both meningococcal and pharyngeal yeast isolation and should be considered when interpreting pharynGEal culture results.
Sexual behavior of individuals infected with the human immunodeficiency virus. The need for intervention.
TLDR
The HIV-infected individuals in this clinic setting participate in a substantial amount of sexual behavior placing others at risk of new HIV infection, and Physicians must address such behaviors.
Neisseria meningitidis in the anal canal of homosexual men.
TLDR
Findings suggest that confirmatory tests are indicated for homosexual males with rectal isolates presumptively identified as N. gonorrhoeae.
Disseminated meningococcal infection in HIV-seropositive patients.
TLDR
Disseminated meningococcal infection, although rare in HIV-infected individuals, may present with a variety of clinical manifestations and responds well to antibiotic therapy.
Factors associated with human immunodeficiency virus seroconversion in homosexual men in three San Francisco cohort studies, 1984-1989.
TLDR
There is some unmeasured risk associated with those using condoms, such as more HIV seropositive partners, according to a nested case-control analysis of three San Francisco cohorts of homosexual and bisexual men.
Pharyngeal Carriage of Neisseria meningitidis and An ogenital Gonorrhea: Evidence for Their Relationship
TLDR
Investigation at two separate clinics for sexually transmitted diseases in New York City found patients with anogenital gonorrhea at both study sites were 1.4-1.7 times more likely to be pharyngeal carriers of N. meningitidis as compared with Gonorrhea-free patients.
