In recent years bacterial sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) have been overshadowed by the growing epidemic of viral STDs, in particular HIV. In addition, the declining prevalence of some bacterial infections in the last 20 years may have suggested that these agents were diseases of the past, of diminishing importance and of limited interest outside specialist care. This has never been the case with chlamydial genital infections and it is timely that we should review their importance, particularly in the light of recent developments.

The objective of this text has been to increase knowledge, awareness and understanding of disease due to chlamydial pathogens. It has also been intended to promote wider debate and to provoke argument when incomplete understanding clearly exists. As in previous editions, hypothesis, future speculation and controversy have been encouraged rather than avoided.
