Urine Screening Alone Misses Most Chlamydia and Gonorrhea in HIV+ MSM

Screening for Chlamydia (CT) and Gonorrhea (GC) is recommended at least annually for sexually active men who have sex with men (MSM). Although most cases of pharyngeal and rectal GC and CT in MSM are asymptomatic, extragenital sites are not frequently screened. The study aim was to determine asymptomatic rates of GC and CT infection at 3 anatomical sites in HIV-infected MSM and compare rates when urine only vs. extragenital sites were tested.
