However, prevalence of fluoroquinolone resis- tance in Neisseria gonorrhoeae has been increasing and is becoming widespread in the United States, necessitating changes in treatment regimens. Beginning in 2000, fluoroquinolones were no longer recommended for gonor- rhea treatment in persons who acquired their infections in Asia or the Pacific Islands (including Hawaii); in 2002, this recommendation was extended to California (2). In 2004, CDC recommended that fluoroquinolones not be used in the United States to treat gonorrhea in men who have sex with men (MSM) (3).

were observed among isolates from heterosexual males and MSM in most regions of the country. As a result, CDC no longer recommends fluoroquinolones for treatment of gon- orrhea in the United States; similarly, CDC no longer recom- mends fluoroquinolones for treatment of other conditions that might be caused by N. gonorrhoeae, such as PID.
CDC has recommended single-dose fluoroquinolone regi- mens for the treatment of gonococcal infections since 1993.
Although QRNG was identified as a problem in Asia in 1991 and was first identified in Hawaii in the same year, only spo- radic occurrences were noted in the continental United States during the 1990s. However, since 1999, increasing resistance of N. gonorrhoeae to the fluoroquinolones has been observed, first in Hawaii, then in California and other Western states, then among MSM, and now in other populations and regions.
CDC has changed treatment recommendations when QRNG prevalence has reached >5% in defined groups and locations, with consideration given to other factors such as the preva- lence of gonorrhea, the availability of antimicrobial suscepti- Northeast
bility data, and the costs of diagnostic and treatment options (4,6). This >5% threshold has been used by CDC and the World Health Organization so that all recommended treatments for gonorrhea can be expected to cure >95% of Because fluoroquinolones are no longer recommended, the options for treating gonococcal infections in the United States are limited (4) (Box).
