Specific cultures were used to detect growth of Neisseria Gonorrhoeae (NG) in 90 ejaculates of partners of childless marriages. Although no gonococcal growth was observed in undiluted semen, 9 out of 68 subjects with silent infection presented growth of NG in seminal plasma after dilution 1:2 with saline. It is concluded that semen dilution increases the chances of detection of NG in semen samples of asymptomatic gonococci carriers.
