It is possible that the main title of the report Chlamydia is not the name you expected. Please check the synonyms listing to find the alternate name(s) and disorder subdivision(s) covered by this report.
Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted bacterial infection with symptoms similar to those of gonorrhea. Until recently, chlamydia was identified primarily when a certain type of eye infection (trachoma) appeared as a symptom. Initially, the symptoms of chlamydia are usually mild and may not be recognized. In rare cases, chlamydia may have serious complications, if left untreated. Individuals who are sexually active and have multiple sex partners are especially at risk for this disease. Since many people with chlamydia do not realize that they have this infection, they may not seek treatment until serious complications occur. Meanwhile, they may have unknowingly spread the disease to others through sexual activity. Treatment with antibiotics is generally successful; however, prevention is the primary course of action.
