[en] Many authors suggest an association between CT infection and dysplasia or neoplastic cervical atypia, but evidence of an isolated Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) infection increasing the risk of developing cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) remains unproven. We present a case of isolated CT infection in an adolescent 17 year old girl who was referred to our hospital with high grade cervical squamous intraepithelial lesion (HSIL) on her Pap smear. CT was detected in both the rapid test of the endocervix specimen and PCR testing of urine, but human papilloma virus (HPV) infection (Qualitative HPV PCR test) was not present. CIN3 was confirmed on biopsy of the thick acetowhite and mosaic zone at colposcopy. Isolated CT infection is a potential factor in the development of CIN in adolescence.
