129 Chlamydophila pneumoniae

130 ETIOLOGY  obligate intracellular pathogens  established a unique niche in host cells  gram-negative envelope without detectable peptidoglycan  share a group-specific lipopolysaccharide antigen  use host ATP for the synthesis of chlamydial proteins  encode an abundant surface exposed protein called the major outer membrane protein (MOMP, or OmpA)  The most significant human pathogens are:  C. pneumoniae ; C. trachomatis ; C. psittaci

131 Clinical Manifestations  classic atypical (or nonbacterial) pneumonia characterized by mild to moderate constitutional symptoms, including  fever, malaise, headache, cough, pharyngitis  Asymptomatic respiratory infection has been documented in 2-5% of adults and children and can persist for ≥1 yr

132 Diagnosis  Auscultation: rales,wheezing  Chest radiograph:  appears worse than the patient's clinical status  mild, diffuse involvement or lobar infiltrates with small pleural effusions.  CBC: may be elevated with a left shift but is usually unremarkable  Specific diagnosis:  isolation of the organism in tissue culture  grows best in cycloheximide-treated HEp-2 and HL cells  optimum site for culture is the posterior nasopharynx

133 Treatment effective for eradication of C. pneumoniae from the nasopharynx of children with pneumonia in approximately 80% of cases  erythromycin (40 mg/kg/day PO divided twice a day for 10 days),  clarithromycin (15 mg/kg/day PO divided twice a day for 10 days), and  azithromycin (10 mg/kg PO on day 1, and then 5 mg/kg/day PO on days 2-5)

134 Chlamydia Trachomatis Genital Tract Infections

135 Etiology  C. trachomatis is a major cause of epididymitis and is the cause of 23-55% of all cases of nongonococcal urethritis,  50% of men with gonorrhea may be co-infected with C. trachomatis  prevalence of chlamydial cervicitis among sexually active women is 2-35%  Rates of infection among girls 15-19 yr of age exceed 20% in many urban populations but can be as high as 15% in suburban populations as well

136 Clinical Manifestations  Up to 75% of women asymptomatic  discharge that is usually mucoid rather than purulent  can cause urethritis (acute urethral syndrome), epididymitis, cervicitis, salpingitis, proctitis, and pelvic inflammatory disease  Asymptomatic urethral infection is common in sexually active men.  Autoinoculation from the genital tract to the eyes can lead to conjunctivitis

137 Diagnosis  Definitive diagnosis: isolation of the organism in tissue culture and as confirmation of the characteristic intracytoplasmic inclusions by fluorescent antibody staining  C. trachomatis can be cultured in cycloheximide-treated HeLa, McCoy, and HEp-2 cells.

138 Treatment  uncomplicated C. trachomatis genital infection in men and nonpregnant women  azithromycin (1 g PO as a single dose)  doxycycline (100 mg PO twice a day for 7 days)  erythromycin base (500 mg PO 4 times a day for 7 days),  erythromycin ethylsuccinate (800 mg PO 4 times a day for 7 days),  ofloxacin (300 mg PO twice a day for 7 days),  levofloxacin (500 mg PO once daily for 7 days).

139 Treatment  For pregnant women  erythromycin base (500 mg PO twice a day for 7 days)  amoxicillin (500 mg PO 3 times a day for 7 days)  erythromycin base (250 mg PO 4 times a day for 14 days),  erythromycin ethylsuccinate (800 mg PO 4 times a day for 7 days or 400 mg PO 4 times a day for 14 days),  azithromycin (1 g PO in a single dose)  Amoxicillin at a dosage of 500 mg PO 3 times a day for 7 days is as effective as any of the erythromycin regimens

140 Treatment  Empirical treatment  only for patients at high risk for infection who are unlikely to return for follow-up evaluation,  including adolescents with multiple sex partners  treated empirically for both C. trachomatis and gonorrhea  Sex partners of patients with nongonococcal urethritis should be treated  Especially if they have had sexual contact with the patient during the 60 days preceding the onset of symptoms  The most recent sexual partner should be treated even if the last sexual contact was more than 60 days from onset of symptoms

141 Complications  perihepatitis (Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome) and salpingitis  up to 40% will have significant sequelae:  17% will suffer from chronic pelvic pain,  17% will become infertile  9% will have an ectopic (tubal) pregnancy  Adolescent girls at higher risk for complications:  tubal scarring,  subsequent obstruction with secondary infertility,  increased risk for ectopic pregnancy

142 Complications  50% of neonates born to pregnant women with untreated chlamydial infection will acquire C. trachomatis infection  Women with C. trachomatis infection have a 3-5-fold increased risk for acquiring HIV infection

143 Prevention  Timely treatment  Sex partners should be evaluated and treated if they had sexual contact during the 60 days preceding onset of symptoms in the patient  The most recent sex partner should be treated even if the last sexual contact was >60 days

144 Complications  Patients and partners:  abstain from sexual intercourse until 7 days after a single- dose regimen or after completion of a 7-day regimen  Annual routine screening for C. trachomatis for  sexually active female adolescents,  women 20-25 years of age,  older women with risk factors such as new or multiple partners or inconsistent use of barrier contraceptives

145 Chlamydia Trachomatis Conjunctivitis and Pneumonia in Newborns

146 Epidemiology  5-30% of pregnant women  50% risk for vertical transmission at parturition to newborn infants  infected at 1 or more sites, (conjunctivae, nasopharynx, rectum, and vagina)  Transmission is rare following cesarean section with intact membranes  systematic prenatal screening and treatment of pregnant women decreased the incidence

147 Inclusion Conjunctivitis  30-50% of infants born to mothers with active, untreated chlamydial infection  develop 5-14 days after delivery,  from mild conjunctival injection with scant mucoid discharge to severe conjunctivitis with copious purulent discharge,  chemosis,  pseudomembrane formation  conjunctiva may be very friable and miight bleed when stroked with a swab  50% of infants with chlamydial conjunctivitis also have nasopharyngeal infection

148 Pneumonia  10-20% of infants born to women with active, untreated chlamydial infection  25% of infants with nasopharyngeal chlamydial infection develop pneumonia  Onset:1 and 3 mo of age  Presentation: insidious, with persistent cough, tachypnea, and absence of fever  Auscultation: rales  Laboratory finding: peripheral eosinophilia (>400 cells/mm 3 )  Chest radiograph: hyperinflation accompanied by minimal interstitial or alveolar infiltrates.

149 Diagnosis  Definitive diagnosis: isolation of C. trachomatis in cultures of specimens obtained from the conjunctiva or nasopharynx.  Nonculture methods including direct fluorescent antibody (DFA)  sensitivities of ≥90% and  specificities of ≥95% for conjunctival specimens compared with culture.

150 Treatment: C. trachomatis conjunctivitis or pneumonia in infants  erythromycin (base or ethylsuccinate, 50 mg/kg/day divided 4 times a day PO for 14 days).  results of 1 small study:  short course of azithromycin (20 mg/kg/day once daily PO for 3 days) is as effective as 14 days of erythromycin.  An association between treatment with oral erythromycin and infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis has been reported in infants <6 wk of age who were given the drug for prophylaxis after nursery exposure to pertussis

151 Prevention  screening and treatment of pregnant women  Reasons for failure of maternal treatment:  poor compliance  re-infection from an untreated sexual partner
