To the Editor: From 2000 to 2009, national and New South Wales gonorrhoea notification rates were reasonably stable, but since 2010 have shown a marked rise.1 In a recent inner Sydney clinic-based study, most infections were in men who have sex with men (MSM), and chlamydia co-infection was common.2
