[Early screening using a direct test for genital chlamydiosis in women].

Abstract

Elevated prevalence of asymptomatic genital tract Chlamydia infection in women, complications of this infection and introduction on the market of simple and accurate diagnostic tests at low cost are the major reasons to suggest screening programs for genital tract Chlamydia infection in women. Case finding should be the adopted approach. Diagnostic tests, including culture considered to be the gold standard, are reviewed. Accuracy and usefulness of these laboratory techniques are discussed in the context of the proposed case-finding approach.
