Dang, T; Jaton-Ogay, K; Flepp, M; Kovari, H; Evison, J M; Fehr, J; Schmid, P; Boffi El Amari, E; Cavassini, M; Odorico, M; Tarr, P E; Greub, G (2009). High prevalence of anorectal chlamydial infection in HIV-infected men who have sex with men in Switzerland. Clinical Infectious Diseases, 49(10):1532-1535.

Abstract

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected men who have sex with men (MSM) were enrolled in an anorectal Chlamydia trachomatis screening study. Anorectal Chlamydia DNA was detected in 16 (10.9%) of 147 men, mainly among asymptomatic patients and patients having >20 sexual partners. These results support routine anorectal Chlamydia screening in HIV-infected MSM who report unprotected anal intercourse.
