The prevalence of Chlamydia trachomatis in the women with genital infection and in infertile women



The prevalence of Chlamydia trachomatis in the women with genital infection and in infertile women



Mikrobiyoloji Bulteni 30(2): 159-163



Chlamydia trachomatis antigen in endocervical and tubal specimens taken from 155 women with infertility and 94 women with mucopurulent cervicitis have been investigated by using Clearview Chlamydia (Unipath Ltd. U.K.) test kits with ELISA test-pack method. Fifty specimens from infertile women were taken with laparoscopy from uterine tubes and the others were taken with suitable methods from endocervix. C. trachomatis antigen has been detected in 9 (5.8%) of 155 infertile women and in 7 (7.4%) of 94 women with mucopurulent cervicitis. An inclusion conjunctivitis case due to C. trachomatis was observed in a baby born from of one these antigen positive women. We think that the prevalence of chlamydial infections shows variability depend on sexual behaviors of persons, and it is necessary to take precautions for early diagnosis and treatment in these infections.
