Background To study the prevalence and structure of mixed infection in women with Chlamydial genital infection.
Methods The object of research was 80 women revealed to have Chlamydial genital infection. Age varied from 16 to 47 making in average 24.2+1.6. 37 (46.3%) women of 80 patients needed medical care due to complaints, 36 (45%) women were examined due to inflammatory process in sexual partner (husband), in 7 (8.7%) cases clamidiosis was revealed during the small pelvis surgery. During the examination 23 (28.8%) patients did not complain, other patients (71.2%) complained of lower abdominal pains (45%), itching or discomfort in urethra (31.3%), pathologic discharge from genital tracts (38.7%), colic when urinating (22.5%), infertility (11.3%), menstrual abnormalities (3.7%), periodic raise of temperature (2.5%).
Results Complex bacteriological research showed that only 28 (35%) women had Chlamydial genital infection as a monoinfection, in other cases the inflammatory process was caused by mixed-infection. By comparison of clinical data with the results of bacteriological investigation it was concluded that only 34 (42.5%) women of all undergone the examination had the combination of pathogenic and conditionally pathogenic bacteria, 28 (35%)—association of aerobes and anaerobes, 9 (11.3%)—pathogenic bacteria and fungi of Candida genus, 2 (2.5%)—conditionally pathogenic fungi. 29 (36.3%) women had the mixed infection as combination of two infections (C trachomatis +1 agent), 23 (28.7%)—three and more infections. As the accompanying infection U urealyticum was the most common—in 20 (25%) patients with Chlamydial genital infection, T vaginalis—in 19 (23.8%), N gonnorhea—in 13 (16.3%), S aureus—in 10 (12.5%), C albicans—in 9 (11.3%), M hominis—7 (8.7%), G vaginalis—6 (7.5%).
