Abstract

Chlamydia trachomatis has assumed a critically important role in the pathogenesis of gynecologic/perinata/neonatal infectious morbibidity. C. trachomatis is responsible for several infectious syndromes in the non-pregnant woman, the mother and her offspring. Detection and treatment of chlamydia infections are as important as that of other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) such as GC, syphilis, trichomoniasis, etc. An appreciation of the seriousness of the resulting disorders and a high index of suspicion are absolute prerequisites for successful management.
