    Gonorrhea is all diseases caused by Neisseria gonorrhoeae. Prepubertal child is more susceptible to N. gonorrhoeae infection because the vagina is alkaline and contains no estrogen. Gonorrhea vaginitis is the most common form of gonorrhoea in prepubertal children beyond neonatal period. Transmission in child can be through sexual contact (abuse) or non-sexual contact. Gonorrhea vaginitis in children more often asymptomatic, with clinical manifestation such as mucopurulent discharge, vaginal pruritus and vulval erythema. Supporting examination comprise of gram staining from vaginal discharge, culture and nucleic acid amplification testing (NAAT). Ceftriaxone is drug of choice gonorrhea without complication in children. We report a case of 4 year and 9-month female girl that was diagnosed by history taking and supporting examination from gram staining and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) from vaginal discharge, and then treated with single dose ceftriaxone 125 mg intramuscular that gave clinical improvement.
