Abstract

Eight Neisseria gonorrhoeae isolates, negative by direct fluorescent antibody (DFA) but positive by a DNA probe, were characterized by pulsed field gel electrophoresis and compared to eight DFA-positive, probe-positive isolates. Results indicate that DFA-negative, probe-positive Neisseria gonorrhoeae isolates may be clonal.
