    Chlamydia trachomatis was isolated from the cervix of 18 (33%) of 55 women who admitted to two or more casual sexual contacts to one (3%) of 32 women who admitted to one casual contact in the preceding month. The chlamydial infections did not produce characteristic clinical features. Since promiscuous women are at high risk of acquiring chlamydial infection, they should be regarded as a priority group when resources for chlamydial isolation are limited.
