Chlamydia trachomatis

Chlamydia infection is caused by Chlamydia trachomatis. The organism can cause proctitis similar to that of CD. Untreated disease may become ulcerated causing fistulas, abscesses, or rectal stricture, which may be misdiagnosed as adenocarcinoma. Diagnosis is usually made by serology. Treatment consists of oral tetracycline or erythromycin, 500 mg 4 times a day for 3 weeks. Rectal strictures are primarily treated medically; in case of failure, surgical resection with coloanal anastomosis may be required.
