ABSTRACT: A case of gonococcal urethritis with streptococcal ecthyma of the shaft of the penis is discussed. Although uncommon, streptococci can sometimes cause major genital diseases. The incidence of sexually transmitted diseases is increasing throughout the world with varied clinical features of the disease, including uncommon infections due to bacteria. virus, and fungi. The various genital infections caused by neisseria gonorrhoea are well known. Eventhough streptococci can cause cutaneous and systemic diseases and rarely life threatening infections, lesions on the genitalia are uncommon. Streptococcal infections usually present as impetigo, ecthyma, lymphangitis and cellulitis.
