Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The purpose of the study was to evaluate the clinic prevalence and clinical characteristics of patients with LGV since 2007 when active clinic surveillance started. We review all the reports of rectal Chlamydia trachomatis and LGV testing of those samples. Chlamydia trachomatis LGV DNA was detected by Nucleic Acid Amplification/ompA gene sequencing. Medical records of all patients with LGV were reviewed. Prevalence of rectal CT among tested individuals was relatively stable during the study period: 2007 (15%), 2008 (15%), 2009 (12%) and 2010 (14%). Eight cases of LGV were identified during the study period, one in 2009 and seven in 2010. All individuals were male and all except one had sex with only men. Most of them were also infected with HIV (62.5%). We concluded that this is the first report of LGV cases in South Florida and shows a rapid increase in the number of cases in the last year.
