Abstract

A 15-year-old boy had acute gonococcal flexor tenosynovitis of the middle finger associated with symptomatic gonococcal pharyngitis. The patient had a history of blunt trauma to the hand. The need for a careful history in any sexually active adolescent is emphasized. Acute flexor tenosynovitis may be the only manifestation of disseminated gonococcal infection.
