This image depicted an intraoral view of a patient who had presented with pharyngeal inflammation that was subsequently diagnosed as a case of gonococcal pharyngitis, caused by the bacterium, Neisseria gonorrhoeae. Gonococcal pharyngitis is a sexually transmitted infection, acquired through oral sex with an infected partner. The majority of throat infections caused by gonococci have no symptoms, but some can suffer from mild to severe sore throat.
