Prostatic enlargement associated with symptomatic and asymptomatic gonorrhoea in adolescent men: An argument for routine rectal examination. Ten adolescent men presented with prostatic enlargement and positive anterior urethral cultures for gonococci. Six of them had urethritis, but four were asymptomatic; the prostate is therefore implicated as a reservoir for the asymptomatic carrier and it is strongly recommended that the rectum should be included in the routine physical examination of sexually active adolescent men.
