Urogenital chlamydia A fairly common infectious disease,Which is transmitted, mainly, sexually. It is observed in women (urethritis, colpitis, bartholinitis, endocervicit, erosion, endometritis, salpingitis, proctitis) and even in newborns (infection occurs during labor). The frequency of this disease in women with inflammatory processes is 50%, in addition, chlamydia is a frequent concomitant pathology in patients with gonorrhea (40%) and trichomoniasis (40%). The reason for the widespread spread of chlamydia is its asymptomatic course, the complexity of diagnosis and treatment.
The source of infection is a sick person.
Ways of infection:
- Sexual (basic);
- intranatal (congenital, passing through the genital tract);
- household (contaminated hand, tools, underwear, toilet items).
The urogenital strain of chlamydia, in addition to the defeat of the urogenital organs, can also cause pharyngitis, conjunctivitis, perihepatitis, otitis media, pneumonia, Reiter's syndrome.
Clinic: The incubation period lasts from 5 to 30 days. The main primary form of the disease in chlamydial lesions is endocervicitis, which can be asymptomatic or malosymptomatic. In the acute stage, purulent, serous-purulent discharge is observed. In chronic form, mucopurulent discharge and pseudo-erosion of the cervix appear. Chlamydial urethritis can be asymptomatic or manifest as dysuric phenomena. Specific symptoms that would help clinically diagnose chlamydia do not exist.
Salpingitis caused by chlamydia is characterized by the same symptoms as the process caused by other microorganisms. The consequence of chlamydial salpingitis may be infertility.
This is a parasitic disease that develops due to the penetration of vaginal trichomonads into the lower parts of the genital organs and urethra.
Clinic: In acute and subacute forms, patients complain of the appearance of foamy discharge with an unpleasant odor, burning sensation and itching in the genitals. Burning and soreness when urinating. With trichomoniasis, erosion of the cervix can also occur. With the torpid form, the manifestations of the disease are insignificant or completely absent. Chronic trichomoniasis is characterized by the appearance of leucorrhoea, itching and signs of the inflammatory process are minor.
Urogenital mycoplasmosis, gardrenesis, ureaplasmosis - Occur in acute and chronic forms and notHave the symptoms characteristic of these pathogens, they are also often detected in practically healthy women. For them, the torpid (low-symptom) flow is very characteristic. In women, these infections can be activated by menstruation, oral contraceptives, pregnancy, childbirth, general hypothermia. All these infections are very often found in the association.
