Antibiotic resistance to Neisseria gonorrhoea(N.g) is rapidly developing and changing worldwide. Soon we may be faced with a situation where parenteral treatment is the only option.

Methods: All N.G cases in our clinic between 1st  January to 30th June 2007 to 2016 were identified and analysed for antibiotic sensitivity.

Results: In 2016 there were 131 cases of N.g identified.  Since the introduction of Ceftriaxone and Azithromycin as the treatment of choice in 2011 we saw a reduction in multi drug resistance until 2013, after which point we saw a gradual increase in cases reaching 23% in 2016. This is the first year we have identified the isolate resistant to four antibiotic groups including Cefuroxime
