    Abstract

    A case of heterosexual transmission of Neisseria meningitidis group A by fellatio, which resulted in acute purulent urethritis in the male partner, is presented. The emotional impact of a mistaken diagnosis of gonococcal infection and the need to treat asymptomatic throat carriage in sexual contacts makes early recognition of meningococcal infection important in this unusual circumstance.
