Chlamydia Trachomatis


Presentation

  • Abstract We present two cases of adolescents who presented with painless scrotal masses suggestive of testicular cancer.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • T-MOMP′ cultures from two serovar E-infected subjects (STD 69 and STD 76) tested for the first time in the present study clearly responded to peptide 145-163, residues 145 to 160 of which are present in VS2 (Fig. 2 A and B).[doi.org]
Ascitic Fluid
  • Later, after the patient had been discharged from hospital, immunofluorescence antibody titers for Chlamydia trachomatis were successfully determined using stored ascitic fluid and serum.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Recurrent Urinary Tract Infection
  • We describe 3 cases of recurrent urinary tract infections due to Chlamydia trachomatis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Vietnamese
  • […] spring of 1995, use of Chinese parsley for successful elimination of Hg deposits existing in various organs of the first author as the result of the decay of radioactive Thallium 201 injected for cardiac SPECT, was accidentally discovered after eating Vietnamese[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Cat Scratch
  • Pathological examination of tissue biopsies was compatible with either lymphogranuloma venereum or cat scratch disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Rectal Mass
  • The colonoscopy showed a nodular ulcerated lesion in the rectum suggestive of rectal malignancy, but biopsies from rectal mass did not reveal malignancy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Fracture
  • Modifications of the envelope of Chlamydia psittaci during its developmental cycle: freeze-fracture study of complementary replicas. Journal of Bacteriology, 141:868-875. Matsumoto A, 1982.[cabi.org]
Scrotal Mass
  • Abstract We present two cases of adolescents who presented with painless scrotal masses suggestive of testicular cancer.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Premature Ejaculation
  • Ejaculation Diagnostic Tool (PEDT), and the Short Form 36 (SF-36) Health Survey.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

  • Diagnostic workup of both these patients revealed Chlamydia trachomatis and both patients were successfully treated with doxycycline. Both patients initially denied sexual activity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Tryptophan Increased
  • When the extracellular chlamydial infection is cleared and IFN-γ is no longer being induced, the host pool of tryptophan increases, and this amino acid again becomes available to the RB.[doi.org]
Bartonella Henselae
  • Bacteria were grown in cell monolayers and detected as positive with an anti-Bartonella henselae rabbit serum. However, such bacteria were identified as Chlamydia trachomatis biovar LGV serovar L2 by PCR sequencing techniques.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Francisella Tularensis
  • The shell vial system is suitable for isolation of intracellular pathogens responsible for chronic lymphadenopathies, including C. trachomatis, Bartonella species, Francisella tularensis, and mycobacteria.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Trophoblastic Cells
  • The addition of chlamydial hsp60 to a trophoblast cell line was shown to induce apoptosis; this response was abrogated by the addition of monoclonal antibody to TLR 4 ( 79 ).[doi.org]
HLA-B27
  • Abstract An adolescent female with Reiter's disease and positive for HLA-B27 is presented. Chlamydia trachomatis was cultured from the eye and Ureaplasma urealyticum and Mycoplasma were isolated from the urogenital tract.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
HLA-DR4
  • Following infection, WT mice mounted more robust humoral and cellular immune responses than HLA-DR4 mice. As determined by vaginal shedding, HLA-DR4 mice were more susceptible to a transcervical C. trachomatis D infection than WT mice.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Liver Biopsy
  • Abstract Chlamydia trachomatis was isolated from liver biopsy specimens on two separate occasions in a young, sexually inactive patient with a 10 month history of recurrent episodes of fever, chills, and abdominal pain.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • […] at both treatment and follow-up visits).[doi.org]
  • A complete resolution of symptoms was observed three months after aetiological treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • Prognosis of chlamydia Treatment of chlamydia Chlamydia prevention References What is chlamydia? Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection caused by bacteria.[myvmc.com]
  • Prognosis Prognosis is excellent with treatment. Patient Education Educate patients about the risks of sexually transmitted diseases and safe sexual practices.[reference.medscape.com]
  • The prognosis is excellent if treatment is initiated early and the entire course of antibiotics is completed. Although treatment failures with primary therapies are quite rare, relapse may occur with alternative therapies.[emedicine.medscape.com]

Etiology

  • Abstract Chlamydia trachomatis as an etiological agent in the Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome has recently been reported; however, the condition has not been typically associated with ascites.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • […] cases annually in US Epidemiology Transmitted by sexual intercourse and to newborns during delivery Risk factors include sexually active young women, OCP use, pregnancy Sites In gynecologic tract, affects cervix, uterus, adnexae; not vulva / vagina Etiology[pathologyoutlines.com]

Epidemiology

  • Promotion of detection and molecular epidemiology research is needed for effective and comprehensive prevention and control programs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • […] m, The Epidemiology of Gonorrhea Among Men Who Have Sex With Men in Stockholm, Sweden, 1990???2004, Sexually Transmitted Diseases, 10.1097/01.olq.0000230442.13532.c7, 34, 3, (174-179), (2007).[doi.org]
