    Well having unprotected sex in Thailand isn't always a good idea.

    I wouldn't call resistance to rocephin and azithromycin to be evidence of a "super bug. " there are several more levels of antibiotics that can be used for UTI's.

    There was a woman, I think she got sick in India but may have ended up in Utah. By the time she died, they'd tried essentially every antibiotic on the market (in lab testing) -- none worked. We have a nasty on called HO41 that I always call MDR in grants because listing everything it's resistant to eats up the word count (including ceftriaxone and azithromycin).

    There have been a few instances where colistin was the only thing that worked.

    And the spread resistant strains is accelerating. There is a reason gonorrhea is one of the top three antimicrobial resistance threats at the CDC, despite the fact that it doesn't kill people.

    I remember the case, she was in Reno of all places. I'm pretty sure we have a thread here about it.

    When you're sitting in the grass, and you feel something splash!
    Gonorrhea, bom bom, bom-she-bom gonorrhea bom bom...

    Nope, that isn't the song either!
