We report a multidrug resistant Neisseria gonorrhoeae exhibiting resistance to ceftriaxone and cefixime, isolated in Portugal in 2019. Whole-genome sequencing was performed for typing and identification of genetic determinants of antimicrobial resistance. Due to its antimicrobial susceptibility profile, awareness should be raised for the circulation of this strain.
