    Four hundred and ten female patients attending obstetric and gynaecological outpatient departments were investigated for possible gonococcal infection. All were in their reproductive phase. Forty-two (10.2%) of them harboured Neisseria gonorrhoeae. Of the infected patients, 40.5% had no symptoms at all. Investigation was carried out using a single, endocervical specimen cultured in Chacko-Nair egg-enriched media.
