Neisseria gonorrhoeae foot abscess. A case report.
A cutaneous abscess involving Neisseria gonorrhoeae is extremely rare outside the perineum. Such remote lesions are a result of disseminated gonococcal disease. A 12-year-old girl with arthrogryposis multiplex congenita developed a gonococcal abscess on the plantar aspect of her lateral forefoot after a two-week prodrome of pain, erythema, and swelling. The infection was successfully treated with open drainage, acetic acid dressing changes, and the administration of penicillin.
