Overview

Gonorrhea is a common sexually transmitted disease. More than 700,000 new infections occur annually in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Gonorrhea is curable with antibiotic treatment and early diagnosis can prevent its dangerous effects, but left untreated, it can lead to infertility. Gonorrhea, Second Edition examines this disease from historical and epidemiological perspectives, discusses how the disease can be prevented, and describes the development of effective treatments.

Deadly diseases affect everyone. Although not all cases are fatal, each disease causes a degree of harm and discomfort to those whom it afflicts and sometimes can have long-lasting consequences. Each book in the series Deadly Diseases and Epidemics takes the reader through all aspects of a disease-from its history and causes or method of infection to its treatment and prevention. The books provide a foundation for understanding the basics of microbiology, immunology, and epidemiology.
