Chlamydia

Chlamydia (ICD Code - A.56) is one of the common Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) caused by bacteria called chlamydia trachomatis affecting both men and women worldwide. The trachomatis infection transmission is predominantly through unprotected sexual contact with the penis, vagina, mouth, or anus of the infected sexual partner. Furthermore, the disease also transmits from infected pregnant women to the newborn during parturition. It is one of the leading genital tract infections affecting humans regardless of age and gender in industrialized and developing countries resulting in severe complications affecting patients quality of life. Therefore, fostering research on human samples obtained from infected patients is necessary to discover more potent diagnostics and therapeutic options.

Chlamydia – Signs and Symptoms:

Patients with Chlamydia infection are generally asymptomatic and therefore remain undiagnosed which increases the chance of disease transmission to others. Clinical presentations of chlamydia vary in males and females; infected men experience scant to profuse, mucoid to purulent urethral or rectal discharge, burning micturition, dysuria, and bleeding. On the other hand, female patients exhibit abnormal vaginal discharge or uterine bleeding, purulent urethral or rectal discharge that can be scant to profuse. Besides, asymptomatic to mild pharyngitis can also be seen in pharyngeal infection. The asymptomatic nature of the illness and lack of specific diagnostic facilities result in morbidity among women and neonates, especially in developing countries.

 

Chlamydia complications:

The chlamydia infection mainly affects the vagina and cervix in females, urethra inside the penis in males, rectum, or throat resulting in vaginal, rectal, urethral, and pharyngeal infections.
Infection in women can lead to uterus and fallopian tube infection, eventually causing severe pelvic inflammatory disease and associated complications (i.e., ectopic pregnancies, infertility). Moreover, untreated chlamydia in a pregnant woman results in preterm delivery and causes ophthalmia neonatorum (conjunctivitis) and pneumonia in the newborn due to exposure to the birth canal infective fluids.

Trachomatis genital infection in males causes epididymitis and urethritis with severe pelvic pain. Moreover, the chlamydia infection increases the risk of developing reactive arthritis both in men and women. Therefore it is crucial to prevent disease occurrence to abstain from the associated spectrum of diseases.


Clinical Diagnosis of Chlamydia:

Among different diagnostic modalities, the nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT) of vaginal swabs or urine is considered as the most sensitive test for chlamydia infection. Also, serological testing for detecting chlamydial antibodies such as anti-chlamydia trachomatis IgA and IgG helps in the screening of chlamydia infection. Chlamydia treatment mainly focus on prompt diagnosis and initiation of pathogen-specific antimicrobial therapy during the initial infection can assure a permanent cure for the disease. If not adequately treated with antibacterials, the risks of reinfections are high.

Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease (STDs) caused by chlamydia trachomatis. It is a genital infection affecting men and women regardless of age. If untreated, chlamydia can cause severe implications, including permanent damage of the reproductive system in females, rectal infection, urethral infection, Reiter syndrome, and rheumatoid arthritis, both in men and women.
Chlamydia is a common sexually transmitted disease (STD) mainly transmitted through unprotected sexual relationships with infected partners. Vaginal, anal, and oral sex with single or multiple sex partners is the main reason for acquiring the illness. Furthermore, it is also transmitted from the infected mother to the newborn during vaginal birth.
Yes, chlamydia can be completely cured by prompt diagnosis and timely treatment. Being a bacterial infection, treatment with appropriate antibiotics effectively optimises infection sequelae and prevents further complications of chlamydia. Moreover, strict adherence to the prescribed medications is necessary for a complete cure and prevention of reinfection.
Young men and women who are sexually active are at risk of developing chlamydia. Since the disease spreads through oral, vaginal, and anal sex, usually bisexuals, gays, and homosexual people are at risk of infection.
Using latex male condoms during sexual intercourse can significantly reduce the risk of giving and getting chlamydia. Moreover, complete sexual abstinence during the stage of infection is the surest way of preventing chlamydia. Furthermore, the patient must avoid vaginal, anal, or oral sex for a duration until the disease is cured completely. Also, indulging in a long-term monogamous sexual relationship with a tested partner aid in preventing illness.
