    1- Ceftrixone resistant gonococci
    2- Chlamydia psittaci
    3- Chlamydia trachomatis
    4- Herpes simplex
    5- Chlamydia pneumonia

    got it from wiki

    C. trachomatis may be treated with any of several antibiotics: azithromycin, erythromycin or doxycycline/tetracycline

    in this case the urethral discharge didn't resolved after treated with ceftriaxone, why? @_@a
    as we know ceftriaxone is a broadspectrum antibiotic.
