Among adults, C trachomatis has been reported to cause cervicitis, salpingitis, endometritis, bartholinitis, prepubertal vaginitis, peritonitis, perihepatitis (Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome: probably more commonly than Neisseria gonorrhoeae), Reiter syndrome, arthritis, endocarditis, epididymitis, urethral syndrome, and urethritis.[31,48,49] It is estimated that among women who attend gynecology clinics and who are infected with N gonorrhoeae, C trachomatis may be concomitantly recovered up to 62% of the time, and that women culture-positive for C trachomatis may be asymptomatic from 44% to 77% of the time.[23,50] Evidence indicates that pelvic infection with C trachomatis may be associated with a greater likelihood of infertility than infection with N gonorrhoeae.[39,51]
