We conclude that a single intramuscular dose of 1.2 million units of procaine penicillin G is an effective, economical and suitable remedy for uncomplicated cases of acute gonococcal urethritis in males. In this series, the cure rate was 95.9 percent and there were no side-effects of the therapy. In our opinion, trypsin-digest beef agar medium enriched with hen's egg is economical, stable and definitely better than the chocolate agar medium for the primary diagnosis of gonococcal infections.
