    Recently the prevalence of strains of penicillinase-producing Neisseria gonorrhoeae (PPNG) in the Netherlands has increased. A study of demographic and clinical data from patients with gonorrhoea due to PPNG strains, and of the biological characteristics of the strains isolated in Rotterdam, show that Asian strains of PPNG seem at present to be endemic in the Netherlands. Spectinomycin was found to be effective in the treatment of patients with gonorrhoeea due to PPNG strains.
