Abstract: A 33-year-old male-to-female transgender consulted our outpatient clinic with perneovaginal bleeding during and following coitus. Four-years before, she underwent a total laparoscopic sigmoïd neovaginaplasty. Physical, histological and endoscopic examination revealed neither focus of active bleeding nor signs of active inflammation. A polymerase chain reaction test performed on a neovaginal swab showed gonococcal infection. Treatment consisted of 500 mg intramuscular ceftriaxone. Three weeks later, our patient reported resolution of symptoms, consistent with eredication of Gonocuccus Neisseria demonstrated by a follow-up neovaginal swab polymerase chain reaction. To our knowledge, this is the first case report of gonococcal infection of the sigmoïd neovagina.
