A retrospective study of women examined at the Venereal Disease Clinic after hysterectomy was made to determine which culture site was most likely to show anogenital Neisseria gonorrhoeae infection when the cervix was absent. Seventeen of 104 such patients were culture positive for N gonorrhoeae. Rates of positivity for our culture sites were as follows: urethral, 17/17 (100%); vaginal, 7/17 (41%); and rectal, 2/17 (12%).
