Eight-six women with suspected acute salpingitis were treated with parenteral cefamandole. From 53 (62%) of these Neisseria gonorrhoeae was recovered from an anogenital site(s) at admission. These women were younger, of lower parity, had pain for a shorter period of time, responded more rapidly to therapy, and required less antimicrobial agent for clinical cure than those from whom N gonorrhoeae was not recovered. The clinical success observed in these women was 94%, and only 2% of 122 gonococcal isolates were resistant to cefamandole in vitro.
