Reduction of non-typeable results using a plasmid oriented Lymfogranuloma venereum PCR for typing of Chlamydia trachomatis positive samples.

PLoS One 2020 4;15(6):e0233990. Epub 2020 Jun 4.

Public Health Laboratory (GGD) Amsterdam, Department of infectious diseases, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Objectives: Typing of Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) is traditionally performed by characterising the ompA gene, resulting in more than a dozen different genovars, A to L. Type L is associated with Lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV) and commonly screened for using PCR, targeting the chromosomal pmpH gene. We aimed to develop and validate a new CT/LGV plasmid-based typing assay targeting the pgp3 gene, to increase sensitivity and thus reduce the number of non-typeable results. Read More

Unilateral inguinal lymphadenitis caused by Yersinia pseudotuberculosis. A case report.

J Infect Chemother 2020 Jul 5;26(7):762-764. Epub 2020 May 5.

Department of Laboratory Medicine, Hyogo Prefectural Kakogawa Medical Center, Kakogawa, Japan.

Acute inguinal lymphadenitis is usually caused by lower extremity infection and sexually transmitted diseases, such as chancroid, lymphogranuloma venereum, genital herpes, or syphilis. Yersinia pseudotuberculosis is a non-spore forming, pleomorphic, non-lactose fermenting Gram negative bacillus and a member of the family Enterobacteriaceae, which is associated with diarrheal diseases. It also causes mesenteric lymphadenitis at the terminal ileum, which can be clinically indistinguishable from acute appendicitis (pseudoappendicitis). Read More

Chlamydia-Induced Reactive Arthritis: Disappearing Entity or Lack of Research?

Curr Rheumatol Rep 2019 11 19;21(11):63. Epub 2019 Nov 19.

School of Medicine, Wayne State University, Detroit, MI, USA.

Purpose Of Review: Recent studies regarding the frequency of Chlamydia-induced reactive arthritis (ReA) are reviewed, with a focus on the question of whether the entity is in fact disappearing or whether it is simply being underdiagnosed/underreported. Epidemiological reports indicate diversity in the frequency of Chlamydia-associated ReA in various parts of the world, with evidence of declining incidence in some regions.

Recent Findings: The hypothesis that early effective treatment with antibiotics prevents the manifestation of Chlamydia-associated ReA requires further investigation. Read More

is the most prevalent sexually transmitted bacterium worldwide and the causative agent of trachoma. Its strains are classified according to their genotypes, which are strongly linked to differential tissue tropism and disease outcomes [ocular disease, urogenital disease and lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV)]. While the genome-based species phylogenetic tree presents four main clades correlating with tropism/prevalence, namely ocular, LGV, urogenital T1 (more prevalent genotypes) and urogenital T2 (less prevalent genotypes), inter-clade exchange of is considered a rare phenomenon probably mediating marked tropism alterations.

Genetic Screen in Chlamydia muridarum Reveals Role for an Interferon-Induced Host Cell Death Program in Antimicrobial Inclusion Rupture.

mBio 2019 04 9;10(2). Epub 2019 Apr 9.

Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, Indiana, USA

Interferon-regulated immune defenses protect mammals from pathogenically diverse obligate intracellular bacterial pathogens of the genus Interferon gamma (IFN-γ) is especially important in controlling the virulence of species and thus impacts the modeling of human chlamydial infection and disease in mice. How IFN-γ contributes to cell-autonomous defenses against species and how these pathogens evade IFN-γ-mediated immunity in their natural hosts are not well understood. We conducted a genetic screen which identified 31 -ensitive (Igs) mutants of the mouse model pathogen Genetic suppressor analysis and lateral gene transfer were used to map the phenotype of one of these mutants, Igs4, to a missense mutation in a putative chlamydial inclusion membrane protein, TC0574.

Infections caused by Chlamydia trachomatis (including lymphogranuloma venereum) and Mycoplasma genitalium.

Enferm Infecc Microbiol Clin 2019 Oct 14;37(8):525-534. Epub 2019 Mar 14.

Unidad de ITS Vall d'Hebron-Drassanes, Servicio de Enfermedades Infecciosas, Hospital Vall d'Hebron, Barcelona, España.

Sexually transmitted infections caused by Chlamydia trachomatis, including lymphogranuloma venereum and Mycoplasma genitalium have increased in last decade. This epidemiological scenario presents new challenges in order to improve and strengthen our control and prevention strategies. The routine clinical diagnosis of urethritis and cervicitis must be combined with the active search for the causal agent in men with symptoms of dysuria or proctitis, and in women with pelvic inflammatory disease.

Lymphogranuloma venereum is a sexually transmitted infection caused by serotypes L1-3 of and may present as hemorrhagic proctocolitis. The diagnosis of an active infection is difficult to establish, as confirmatory testing can be unreliable or unavailable. Imaging findings can be nonspecific and mimic malignancy or other chronic infectious and inflammatory disorders. Read More

Bacterial sexually transmitted infections in France: recent trends and patients' characteristics in 2016.

Euro Surveill 2019 Jan;24(5)

Santé publique France (the French national public health agency), Saint-Maurice, France.

Diagnoses of bacterial sexually transmitted infections (STI) have been increasing in France since their resurgence in the late 1990s. This article presents recent epidemiological trends until 2016 and the patients' characteristics. STI surveillance relies on sentinel networks: a clinician-based network RésIST (clinical, biological and behavioural data for early syphilis and gonorrhoea), the lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV) network (clinical, biological and behavioural data for rectal LGV, and the laboratory networks Rénachla and Rénago (demographic and biological data for chlamydial infections and gonorrhoea, respectively).

Int J STD AIDS 2019 04 4;30(5):515-518. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

3 RPA Sexual Health, Sydney Local Health District, Camperdown, Australia.

An epidemic of lymphogranuloma venereum among men who have sex with men (MSM) has persisted in Australia for over a decade and virtually all diagnoses are made from rectal samples. We discuss two cases of human immunodeficiency virus-negative MSM who presented with a penile ulcer. The diagnosis can be made by ensuring a swab of any such ulcer is tested for Chlamydia trachomatis. Read More
