ROCA, B.. Chlamydial infections. An. Med. Interna (Madrid) [online]. 2007, vol.24, n.6, pp.292-299. ISSN 0212-7199.

Chlamydiae are a singular group of bacteria, with a vital cycle that is intracellular in part. These microorganisms adhere to epithelia, where they may provoke infection. There are three pathogenic species for humans: Chlamydia trachomatis, which produce infections mainly in the genital and urinary tracts, and C. psittaci and C. pneumoniae, which mostly produce respiratory infections. The last two microorganisms are now classified in a different genus, known as Chlamydophila.

Keywords : Chlamydiae; Urinary tract infection; Genital infection; Respiratory tract infection.
