Description: One Neisseria gonorrhoeae strains highly resistant to azithromycin AzHLR (MIC >2048 mg/L) was isolated in Argentina in 2001 and it has been characterized by N. gonorrhoeae multiantigen sequence typing (NG-MAST) as ST696, suggesting a different event to other isolates in Europe. Neither, mtrR mutations or presence of mef gene were detected.
