Gonorrhea (GC): Complications of gonorrhea (gc) include pelvic inflammatory disease and possible infertility in women, and epididymitis in men. Untreated gc can also lead to disseminated infection characterized by arthritis, tenosynovitis, and/or dermatitis which can be life-threatening. If ill enough, the person could become delirious. Syphilis is more known for neuropsychiatric manifestations than gc.
