Abstract

Chlamydia trachomatis today has become the most common bacterial sexually transmitted infection (STI), all over the world. Most of the times it is asymptomatic in female reproductive tract; but if left untreated leads to dreaded consequences like pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), infertility, ectopic pregnancy and chronic pelvic pain. Advent of nucleic acid amplification tests (NAATs) for diagnosis coupled with introduction of single dose azithromycin therapy for treatment has shown high promises to fight against Chlamydial infection as well as to prevent its long term sequels.
