Abstract : Introduction: Since 2000, there has been increase in sexually transmitted infections (STI) and Reunion Island has not escaped this trend. The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of asymptomatic gonorrhea in population of the Reunion Island. The secondary objectives are to gather epidemiological data on patients attending the STI clinic and lead a reflection on the screening Neisseria gonorrhoeae (Ng). Methods: We conducted a cross-sectional study monocentric at the north University Hospital of Reunion Island from genital samples (self vaginal swab, urine and/or anal swab) collected from 1 December 2014 to 1 June 2015. All patients over 15 years eligible for sampling posing STI clinic were Screened for duplex PCR detecting both Ng and Chlamydia trachomatis (Ct) was performed for each sample. Results: 322 patients were screened. Five positive samples for Ng in asymptomatic patients were detected. The prevalences of Ng and Ct were 1.56% and 9.94% respectively. It is also reported 2 cases of co-infection with Ng and Ct in 2 women. Conclusion: The prevalence of asymptomatic Ng is in the high values of the international literature, probably due to a high prevalence of risk behaviors at Reunion Island.
