 A 19 year-old man came to our outpatient clinic with the chief complaint of miction pain. The diagnosis was gonorrheal urethritis. He developed right knee arthritis, bilateral conjunctivitis two days after the injection of antibiotics. These symptoms were consistent to the features of Reiter syndrome. Bacterial culture of urine was negative, as were rheumatoid factor(RF)and HLA-B27 antigens. After the initiation of treatment with corticosteroids, all symptoms were gradually improved and eventually resolved. Reiter syndrome is a rare disease with the triad of arthritis, urethritis and conjunctivitis. Recognition of this uncommon disease is important to facilitate early treatment and recovery.(Rinsho Hinyokika 61:745-747, 2007)
