  1. Fulltext. Chlamydial cervical infection in jailed women.

    Article - En anglais



    The prevalence of Chlamydia trachomatis cervical infection in incarcerated adult women has not been reported.

    To develop a policy for testing and treatment, we determined the prevalence of and risk factors for chlamydial infection in women in a New York City jail.


    Interviews and cervical cultures for C trachomatis were obtained from 101 consenting female inmates.


    Positive cultures for C trachomatis were found in 27% of the participants.

    Mucopurulent cervical discharge and education of 8 years or less were two independent risk factors for infection, but only 63% of the infected women had one or both of these factors.
