As for yaws Chlamydial infections

The spectrum of clinically distinct diseases produced by infection with the different serotypes of Chlamydia trachomatis is summarized in Table 5.8. They include lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV -see p. 115), trachoma and inclusion conjunctivitis (TRIC) agents and also the strains involved in various genital tract infections. With the exception of lymphogranuloma venereum strains which have a predilection for lymph nodes, Chlamydia trachomatis only grows in the columnar epithelial cells found in the conjunctiva, cervix, urethra, the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts and the rectal mucosa. This is reflected in the spectrum of diseases that Lli V cause. The members of this species are .ataral parasites of man only in contrast to the other species of chlamydia, Chi. psittacii, which is primarily a pathogen of birds, only occasionally infecting man.

Epidemiology of Chlamydia Gonorrhea Syphilis and Corrections Overlapping Populations

Chlamydia and Gonorrhea The United States has the highest rates of STIs among developed countries (Eng & Butler, 1997). Chlamydia and gonorrhea are the two most commonly reported infections with 976,445 and 339,593 cases reported in 2005 (CDC, 2006a). Chlamydia and gonorrhea are most common in persons aged 25 and younger, with peak rates among females aged 15-19 and males aged 20-24 (CDC, 2006a). Rates also are substantially elevated in some racial ethnic minority populations. Compared with whites, chlamydia rates are more than 7 times greater among blacks, nearly 5 times greater among American Indians Alaskan Natives, and 3 times greater among Hispanics (CDC, 2006a). Even greater disparities exist in gonorrhea rates, with the rates more than 19 times greater among blacks, more than 3 times greater among American Indians Alaskan Natives, and more than 2 times greater among Hispanics compared with whites (CDC, 2006a). In addition to demographic characteristics, other risk markers...

Cervical barrier methods

The female condom is a lubricated polyurethane sheath with a ring on either end that is inserted into the vagina before sexual intercourse. It has been studied primarily for its effectiveness in preventing pregnancy and STIs other than HIV. Laboratory studies and clinical trials have shown that the female condom provides an effective barrier to organisms smaller than those that cause most STIs, and it is at least equivalent to male condoms in terms of preventing gonorrhoea, trichomoniasis and chlamydia (111). There have been no clinical trials specifically assessing the efficacy or effectiveness of the female condom in preventing HIV infection. However, based on studies in which STI prevention and pregnancy prevention were assessed, it is estimated that the female condom is 94-97 effective in reducing the risk of HIV infection if used correctly and consistently (111). The female condom may be a more attractive choice than male condoms for some women because it resists...

Cicatricial entropion

Cicatricial entropion causes misdirection of lashes when shortening of the posterior lamella follows contraction of scar tissue. The underlying pathology can vary and includes infection (trachoma chlamydia, chronic blepharoconjunctivitis and Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus), toxic epithelial necrolysis (Stevens-Johnson syndrome), pemphigoid and trauma (chemical, thermal and mechanical). Histology is sometimes required to determine the nature of the condition.

Preliminary Tests For Ivf And

A general and pelvic examination is made, including chlamydia screening and updating of cervical cytology. The body mass index of the woman should be calculated (weight divided by height squared) and weight loss advised for any woman with a body mass index of greater than 30. Women are advised to stop cigarette smoking and reduce alcohol intake, not only in pregnancy, but also because they reduce fertility. Folate supplementation is recommended before conception and during the first 12 weeks of a pregnancy (400 g folic acid per day or if there is a history of neural tube defect or the woman is taking medication for epilepsy 4 mg daily).

Methods to Improve Treatment of Persons and their Partners Identified with STIs in Corrections

Identifying persons with STIs in corrections has little public health value unless a high proportion of those with infection are treated. Treatment of persons identified with STIs in corrections varies substantially from a high of 82 to a low of 45 (Heimberger et al., 1993 Beltrami et al., 1997 Blank et al., 1997 Oh et al., 1998 Silberstein et al., 2000 Kahn et al., 2002 Mertz, Schwebke, et al., 2002 Hardick et al., 2003 Barry et al., 2006 Trick et al., 2006). In San Francisco between 2001 and 2004, 81 (1258 1558) of persons with chlamydia and or gonorrhea identified in the jails were treated (Barry et al., 2006). Among those treated, 79 were treated in the jails, 16 through SFDPH follow-up, and 8 at other treatment venues (Barry et al., 2006). CDC published guidelines about recommended therapies for STIs in 2006 (CDC, 2006b). These guidelines are available at http www.cdc.gov mmwr preview mmwrhtml rr5511a1.htm. Generally, in correctional settings, it is preferable to use oral, single...

Community Impact of STI Screening in Corrections

The San Francisco jail chlamydia screening program provides evidence of the potential impact STI screening in jails can have on the community (Barry et al., 2006). As mentioned earlier, SFDPH began targeted screening in the jails in the fall of 2006. They compared the prevalence of chlamydia detected among sexually active young women (aged 25 and younger) seen in a community clinic (Clinic S) located in a neighborhood with high jail testing density compared to a community clinic located in a neighborhood with low jail testing density (Clinic O). The prevalence of infection in these two clinics was compared between 1997 and 2004. The initial prevalence at Clinic S was four times higher than at Clinic O. During the evaluation period, the prevalence of infection at Clinic S declined significantly from 16.1 in 1997 to 7.8 in 2004. The prevalence of infection remained stable at Clinic O at 4.7 during the same period with only minor vacillations. No other STD control programs, other than...

Future Areas for Research and Evaluation

As cities, such as New York City, expand corrections screening, there needs to be evaluation of the impact of these massive screening efforts. There should be evaluations of the best methods to increase treatment of persons screened in corrections, because screening without treatment has little impact. Modeling the expected prevalence of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis detected in corrections based on local disease rates, could provide guidance to local programs about which populations to prioritize and allocate resources for. Because STI disparities are greatest in the southeastern United States, and this is the region with the highest burden of incarceration, it would be useful to model the potential STI burden among incarcerated persons in this region and the impact screening and treatment in corrections could have on regional STI rates. In addition, modeling could suggest how comprehensive screening must be in order to have an impact. In these times of shrinking resources, we...

United States Preventive Services Task Force Recommendations

Recommendations for population-based screening that earned grade A (strongly recommended) or grade B (recommended) in a 2006 review for adult men and women are the following obesity, depression, and high blood pressure screening for persons of all ages, syphilis screening for persons at increased risk, colorectal cancer screening at age 50, diabetes type 2 screening for adults with hypertension or hyperlipidemia, and lipid disorder screening per age and gender (men, age 35 women, age 45) (Guide to Clinical Preventive Services, 2006). Additional procedures are recommended for women breast cancer screening (mammography) at age 40, cervical cancer screening if sexually active, chlamydial infection screening women 25 and younger or at increased risk, and osteoporosis screening for women 65 or older, postmenopausal, or at increased risk for osteoporotic fractures. Men age 65-75 with a history of ever smoking should be screened for abdominal aortic aneurysm via...

The Injury InflammationIschemia Hypothesis of Atherosclerosis

Chlamydia, herpes virus and other pathogens are presumed to injure blood vessels Ross, 1999 . Postprandial hypertriglyceridemia is also proposed to trigger the vessel injury (fig. 75, 76). Advanced glycation endproducts (AGE) may also trigger endothelial injury (fig. 81). Inflammatory reactions would follow to repair the injury. When LA intake is high and membrane phospholipids are saturated with AA, the enhanced LA cascade leads to persistent inflammation by over- and unbalanced production of eicosanoids (elevated TXA2 PGI2 ratio and increased leukotriene production). Increased thrombotic tendency leads to ischemia and inflammation. Reactive oxygen species produced by hypoxic (ischemic) mitochondria and or inflammatory cells attack LDL to form oxidized LDL, stimulate cell-proliferation and thereby accelerate atherogenesis. The lipid factor I in this figure is associated with 6 3 balance and the LA cascade.

Limitations and common pitfalls

The most important limitation is the interpretation and validity of the reported symptoms. Some studies have demonstrated considerable discrepancies between reported and observed symptoms (1) and there might well be recall bias, leading to underreporting. More importantly, the presence of asymptomatic gonococcal or chlamydial infection in males seriously limits the usefulness of this indicator, even as a proxy for STI prevalence or incidence (2). Therefore, self-reported symptoms should be used with caution in assessing the impact of preventive and treatment services.

Charlotte K Kent and Gail A Bolan

Sexually transmitted infections (STI) include a broad category of bacterial, viral, protozoan, and fungal infections and ectoparasitic infestations. For three of these bacterial infections, chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis, there is substantive evidence that screening and treatment in correctional settings could play a critical role in their control. We will describe the epidemiology of these infections, the appropriate populations to target for screening, methods to increase treatment of identified infections, evidence of the impact of detention screening in controlling them, and the cost-effectiveness of detention screening. Correctional settings might also play a critical role in controlling HIV, another STI, among some populations, as discussed in Chapter 8.

Mono Mac 6 Cells and Acanthamoeba castellanii as Suitable In Vitro Models

In addition to Legionella, MM6 cells were found to support the intracellular growth of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (20) and Chlamydia pneumoniae (21), two other important bacterial agents involved in induction of pneumonia. Therefore, the MM6 model might be adaptable to investigations of the molecular pathogenesis of other intracellu-lar bacteria that can replicate within human monocytes and induce disease. Apart from legionellae, amoebae in the environment have also been found to harbor bacteria of several other pathogenic genera, including Burkholderia pickettii (22), Burkholderia cepacia (23), and Burkholderia pseudomallei (24), Chlamydia pneumoniae (25), Listeria (26), Mycobacterium avium (27,28), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (29), Vibrio cholerae (30), and E. coli (31). Rickettsiae are also presumed to be endosymbionts of amoebae (32). As shown for L. pneumophila, M. avium is more virulent in an mouse model after intracellular growth within A. castellanii (27). Therefore, the A....

Gynecological Causes of Acute Abdominal Pain

Adnexal Mass

Pelvic inflammatory disease is increasing in incidence in sexually active adolescents, and is due to either Chlamydia trachomatis or Neisseria gonorrhea infection. Infection ascends from the cervix to involve the endometrium and fallopian tubes. The fallopian tubes become edematous and hyperemic

An Overview of Female Infertility

Medical Algorithm

When evaluating a patient for infertility, ideally the medical history and physical exam are obtained from the couple. One must obtain a complete obstetrical and gynecological history from the female. The menstrual history is an excellent indictor of ovulatory status. A complicated obstetrical history may suggest the need for maternal fetal medicine consultation prior to initiating therapy, especially if the planned infertility treatment predisposes to multiple births. The gynecologic history can give clues about risk factors for tubal scarring (Chlamydia infection, surgery for endometriosis) or cervical factor infertility (ablation for abnormal Pap smear). Infertility occurs when the fallopian tubes or fimbria are scarred or blocked and cannot transport the ovum or sperm, or serve as the site of fertilization. Previous history of salpingitis (tubal infection), pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis, or abdominal surgery can all lead to tubal scarring. Seventy-five percent of...

Assisted Reproductive Technology

Insulin resistance, a common finding with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Other important features to note are a buffalo hump (Cushing's syndrome) short stature, webbed neck, and shield chest (Turner's syndrome). Finally, a complete pelvic examination is crucial during the initial visit and should include evaluation for Mullerian defects, pelvic or abdominal masses, or tenderness, cervical abnormalities, and nodularity in the cul-de-sac. One should consider performing a cervical culture as well due to the association of chlamydia cervicitis and PID. The evaluation of the infertile couple often includes a panel of screening tests. This includes a cervical Pap smear, maternal blood type and Rh, antibody screening, rubella status, RPR (syphilis), varicella status, hepatitis B, and cystic fibrosis. Screening for sexually transmitted diseases is also recommended for patients at high risk, and would include hepatitis C, HIV 1 and 2, HTLV, CMV, chlamydia, and gonorrhea.

Bacterial infections

Chlamydia trachomatis (serotypes L1 3) Lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV) is one of a range of diseases caused by Chlamydia trachomatis (see p. 122). Unlike trachoma arid inclusion c Bc junctivitis (see p. 122) the serotypes of I'd. 1.2 amL.1.3 cause systemic disease rather than being fcsmctcd to the mucous membrane surface The control of gonorrhoea is based on the principles set out in the section on sexually transmitted diseases. Gonococcal ophthalmitis can be prevented by treating all infected pregnant women and by toilet to the eyes of all newborn babies. The latter consists of instilling one drop of 1 silver nitrate into the eyes of every newborn baby. Alternatively, tetracycline ointment may be used with the added advantage of protection against chlamydial infection.

Reproductive Health Needs of Incarcerated Juveniles

Due to the high rates of sexual risk behaviors and low rates of condom use, it is not surprising that juvenile detainees experience higher rates of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV. In one study, 20 of juvenile detainees tested positive for an STI (Crosby et al., 2004). Rates of chlamydia among juvenile detainees range between 2.4, and 27 in females and 1 and 8 in males (Lofy, Hofmann, Mosure, Fine, & Marrazzo, 2006 Kahn et al., 2005 Robertson & Thomas, 2005). Because these rates are so much higher than in the general population, chlamydia screening is recommended for both males and females. Gonorrhea rates are also disproportionately high for juvenile detainees from 0 to 17 in females and 0 to 18 in males (Kahn et al., 2005 Robertson & Thomas, 2005). In addition to chlamydia and gonorrhea, other STIs affect incarcerated youth, although these are the most common. A 1996 study assessed the prevalence of genital herpes in a sample of detained juveniles and...

Epididymitis and orchitis

Bacterial < 35 years most commonly Chlamydia or Gonococcus. > 35 years most common are coliforms. Rare TB, syphilis. Viral Mumps can cause orchitis. Fungal Candida if immunocompromised. M Medical Antibiotic treatment, if severe may need IV treatment initially. Young patients where chlamydia is likely, doxycycline for 2 weeks and attendance as a genitourinary clinic for follow-up and contact tracing. In older patients, quinolones (e.g. ciprofloxacin) are recommended for 2-4 weeks. Adequate analgesic and scrotal support. Follow-up is still recommended to exclude testicular malignancy. If TB is suspected, antituberculous regimen is necessary.

Targeted STI Screening in Correctional Settings

Targeted Chlamydia and Gonorrhea Screening Because resources for STI screening are limited, screening programs should focus on the highest risk persons in jails and youth detention. Prevalence of infection varies substantially by gender and age. Nationally, the prevalence of chlamydial infection in detention settings among boys younger than 16 was less than 5 , as was the prevalence of infection among men aged 30 and older (CDC, 2006a). Among women aged 35 and older, the prevalence of infection was 5 (CDC, 2006a). The relative ranking of prevalence by gender and age is seen in Figure 12.3. However, because San Francisco has moderate rates of chlamydia among heterosexuals, the observed prevalence of infection is much lower than that observed in much of the country, especially the southeastern United States (CDC, 2006b). Based on San Francisco data and national data (CDC, 2006a), the rank order for targeting chlamydia and gonorrhea screening should be women aged 30 and younger in jails...

Specific Infections Affecting The Eyes In Travellers

Chlamydia trachomatis has several strains, which cause different forms of conjunctivitis. The more common strain in the UK and USA is the milder form, which causes inclusion conjunctivitis. This form is more likely to be contracted by the less careful traveller, as it is sexually transmitted and can be easily transferred from genitalia to conjunctiva by fingers. Serotypes A, B and C of C. trachomatis cause classical trachoma. Diagnosis and Management of Chlamydial Infection in Travellers The correct diagnosis involves a conjunctival scrape sent in special chlamydia transport medium (which should be available from a sexual health clinic or gynaecology department). The scrape must include conjunctival cells so it must be done quite firmly with a spatula. A smear can also be made from the scrape on to a glass slide, which will give a quick diagnosis, although serotyping will be necessary. If the sample is taken inadequately or in the wrong medium, the condition will go undiagnosed. The...

Bacterial detection and quantification

Rapid detection by real-time PCR has been an important advantage where early diagnosis and appropriate antibiotic therapy are vital for survival, and traditional methods are often time-consuming. For instance, the early detection of bacterial DNA in the blood of critically ill patients with traditional culture diagnostic is still technically difficult (Cursons et al., 1999). Real-time PCR assays have been developed for quantification of different bacteria, including Chlamydia pneumoniae in human atherosclerotic plaques (Ciervo et al., 2003), intestinal bacterial populations (Ott et al., 2004) and Streptococcus pneumoniae in nasopharyngeal secretions (Saukkoriipi et al., 2004). Helicobacter pylori is considered to be the major causative agent of gastritis in acute or chronic forms and an important factor for etiology of peptic ulcer and gastric cancer. Real-time PCR technique based on the amplification of a fragment of the 23S rRNA gene has been developed (Lascols et al., 2003). This...

Pulmonary complications

Acute Chest Syndrome

Chlamydia, Legionella, pneumococcus, H. influenzae and viruses are more likely in children. Fat-laden pulmonary macrophages in the airways due to fat embolization from the bone marrow are present in one-half of the cases. Hypoxia due to acute chest syndrome can result in widespread sickling and vaso-occlusion, with risk of multiorgan failure. Patients should receive supplemental oxygen, incentive spirometry and antibiotic therapy directed towards the common organisms. One commonly used regimen consists of cefuroxime and erythromycin, although antibiotics should be guided by local experience. Most patients have a bronchoreactive component and should receive bron-chodilator therapy. Recent data suggest that early transfusion may prevent the progression of pneumonia. Urgent blood transfusion is always required for persistent hypoxia or worsening lung consolidation. Partial exchange transfusion and mechanical ventilation is sometimes needed in rapidly progressive cases. Nitric oxide and...

Spectrum

PDF is a ubiquitous bacterial enzyme, with at least one pdf gene present in all bacterial genomes sequenced to date 22 . Based on phylogenetic and structural analysis, PDF proteins can be subdivided into two classes that differ significantly at the C-terminus type I, found in Gramnegative and some Gram-positive bacteria, and type II, found only in Gram-positive bacteria 22 . The active sites of both type I and type II PDFs are highly conserved, indicating that it should be possible to obtain broad-spectrum inhibitors of this enzyme 22, 23 . In fact, PDF inhibitors have been reported to have activity against a wide range of pathogens including, among others, those involved in community respiratory tract infections (S. pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, Moraxella catarrhalis) 24-28 , including atypical organisms (Legionella pneumophila, Chlamydia pneumoniae, Mycoplasma pneumoniae) 28-33 , Gram-positive infections (S. aureus, enterococci, viridans group streptococci) 28, 34, 35 ,...

Infections

Of the other infections, pneumonia is particularly common in SCD and can be difficult to differentiate from non-infective causes of acute chest syndrome. The most frequent organisms responsible for pneumonia are Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Chlamydia pneumoniae, S. pneumoniae and H. influenzae. Lung infections can also arise due to respiratory viruses. In adults, bacteraemia and urinary tract infections due to E. coli and other Gram-negative organisms are more frequent. Patients with SCD are susceptible to osteomyelitis owing to bone infarction resulting from vaso-occlusion. The infection is typically due to Salmonella spp. or Staphylococcus aureus.

Infective agents

Tuberculosis (Mycobacterium tuberculosis) Pneumococcal pneumonia (Streptococcus pneumoniae) Other pneumonias (Streptococcus pyogenes, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae) Psittacosis (Chlamydia psittaci) Atypical pneumonia (Mycoplasma pneumoniae) Meningococcal infection (Neisseria meningitidis) Streptococcal infection, rheumatic fever

Summary

There is a heavy burden of STIs among select populations of incarcerated persons. Evidence suggests that targeted screening and treatment of STIs can reduce community rates of infection. Broad-based, national screening of targeted young people in corrections, especially young males in jails, would allow public health programs an opportunity to leverage the alarming racial and ethnic disparities within the incarcerated population to address important subpopulations at greatest risk for STIs. If all young men were screened in jails, over the course of a year more than 10 of black men at greatest risk for chlamydial and gonococcal infection would be screened and treated, presenting a key opportunity for public health impact in the communities these men come from and will return to. Additionally, researchers have attributed the increase in HIV infection among blacks to the rising rate of incarceration among blacks (Johnson & Raphael, 2005). If true, finding and treating STIs among...

Medical Problems

Studies have demonstrated an extremely high prevalence of sexually transmitted diseases among female prison inmates. Not all those infected are diagnosed, because many facilities only test women who are symptomatic or who request testing. One study estimated that between 11 and 17 of women tested positive for chlamydia infection, while 9 tested positive for gonococcus infection. Juvenile facilities reported an even higher prevalence of infection. In Chicago, among female prisoners, the incidence of infection with chlamydia was 27 and that of gonococcus was 11 the Birmingham rates were 22 and 17 (CDC, 1999). Annual data from the California Department of Corrections demonstrate an incidence among women of positive skin testing for tuberculosis of between 20 and 30 . In contrast, less than 0.5 of the general population demonstrate a positive skin test for tuberculosis. Another study from the California Department of Corrections showed that 54 of female prisoners tested positive for...

Parasitic Infection

Parasitic infection as the only or concomitant cause of infertility in Caucasian women is rare to date however, with the burgeoning increase in travel for work and play, parasitic causes of infertility will increase. Parasitic infections may be found in unusual places if there is an index of suspicion. An interesting case of microfilariae in follicular fluid was recently described in a case report (Goverde et al., 1996). The case involved an infertile woman undergoing in vitro fertilization. Her infertiliy was presumed to be due to Chlamydia trachomatis but moving microfilariae of Mansonella perstans were found in the aspirated follicular
