Well, this resembles the gonococcus bacteria which causes gonorrhea.
It is due to the lodgment of the gonococcus of Neisser in the joint, from the blood stream.
When both tubes are affected the cause is commonly the gonococcus, and attempts at preservation then fail, as a rule.
The least trace of Gomenol prevents the growth in vitro of the streptococcus, the tuberculous bacillus and the gonococcus.
Ordinarily, no attempt is made to identify any but the tubercle bacillus and the gonococcus.
The gonococcus, colon bacillus, or some other pyogenic bacterium gets a nidus after pressure and lowered power of resistance.
The gonococcus is distinguished by its failure to grow upon ordinary media.
Gurd isolated the gonococcus in 52 of 113 pregnant women who came to his dispensary service because of pelvic pain.
The gonococcus of Neisser is found both inside and outside of pus cells and mucous cells.
So may any membranous point be infected by the gonococcus, whether conveyed by hand or instrument or fabric.
