Treatment for gonorrhoea, historical image. Poster published by health authorities in the USA explaining the historical significance of the use of the antibiotic penicillin as a cure for gonorrhoea. Neisseria gonorrhoeae is a Gram-negative bacterium that causes the sexually transmitted infection gonorrhoea. Symptoms include vaginal or urethral discharge and a burning sensation on urination.
