AbstractThe usual treatment for gonorrhoea in this institution is procaine penicillin 12 lakhs daily for 3 days. Generally the response with this regimen is good. However in view of the fact that some cases did not respond to this treatment, trial with oxytetracycline was carried out on 15 patients, and is compared with the results obtained with penicillin in 15 patients. With the dosage schedules of penicillin and oxytetracycline followed by us all 30 patients improved and did not develop any recurrence, even after 3 weeks.
