He had had no other sexual partners in the past 6 months and did not report having sex with men or prior sexually transmitted infections.

On examination, he was afebrile with a heart rate of 68 beats/min, blood pressure of 126/72 mm Hg, and a respiratory rate of 14 breaths/min. Spontaneous mucopurulent urethral discharge was noted. No suprapubic tenderness, inguinal lymphadenopathy, epididymal tenderness, or genital ulcers were present.
