International Handbook of Chlamydia

4th Edition edited by Dr Timothy R Moss

Chlamydia trachomatis is a bacterial sexually transmitted disease of global public health significance - it is estimated that 89 million new cases occur each year. It is associated with trachoma, lymphogranuloma venereum and genital infection. Chlamydial infection can cause pelvic inflammatory disease, resulting in ectopic pregnancy and infertility, neonatal infections, epididymitis and joint inflammation in men. Some forms of chlamydia cause chest infections and acute pulmonary infections, sometimes with chronic, crippling and killing complications.

This book gives an up to date overview of the disease with chapters on epidemiology, screening, diagnosis, complications in both men and women, economic implications and treatment. The 2nd edition extensively revises the first practical handbook and includes two new chapters on screening programmes and lymphogranuloma venereum.

The authors are all international experts and the editor is Dr Timothy Moss, Clinical Director of Genito-urinary Medicine at the Doncaster Royal Infirmary, England.
