An evaluation of the Gonozyme test as a rapid screening test for the detection of gonococcal antigenemia in genital secretions in comparison to the conventional diagnostic methods like isolation or detection of the organism by Gram stained smear has been carried out. Gonozyme test was found to be highly specific with a sensitivity of 85.7% and 91.3% for the make and female patients respectively. In addition it was able to detect 9.85% male and 36.58% females cases of gonorrhoea which were negative by conventional tests. The false negative rate of Gonozyme test was 15.15% in male and 7.31% infemale patients. Gonozyme test is recommended for the rapid diagnosis of gonorrhoea not as a single test but in combination with the Gram stained smear examination for the males and culture in female patients.
