Resumen

Se presenta una revisión completa de los principales aspectos microbiológicos, clínicos y epidemiológicos de Chlamydia trachomatis. Se hace énfasis en los mecanismos particulares de invasividad, tipo de receptores, aspectos epidemiológicos y factores genéticos de susceptibilidad entre otros. Se abordan las patologías que ocasiona Chlamydia trachomatis separando las infecciones en el hombre, mujer y niños. También se realiza una actualización sobre los diferentes métodos de diagnóstico desde el cultivo celular hasta la biología molecular; se hace una reseña de C. psittaci y C. pneumoniae. Por último se tocan aspectos terapéuticos del tratamiento con énfasis en las infecciones por Chlamydia trachomatis
