Abstract

A 31 year old married male presented with urethral discharge, dysuria and painful lump over the penis. Examination revealed thick, yellowish, offensive urethral discharge and tender, enlarged Tyson’s gland. Gram staining of the urethral smear showed intracellular and extracellular Gram negative diplococci, suggesting the diagnosis of gonococcal tysonitis. He responded well to the intramuscular ceftriaxone and oral doxycycline therapy.
