Infections uro-génitales à Chlamydia trachomatis chez les hommes consultant au CeGIDD de l'hôpital Saint-Antoine

Abstract : The prevalence of Chlamydia trachomatis (Ct) urogenital infection has been increasing in the last ten years in France. Undetected this infection can lead to serious complications. It is often asymptomatic. French guidelines of 2003 recommend the screening of female subjects under 25 years old. They also considered the screening of men under 30, which has not really been implemented, and called for epidemiological studies before extending the screening to general practice. Our objective was to determine the current prevalence of Ct urogenital infection in men of all ages attending the free, information, screening and diagnostic center of sexually transmitted infections (CeGIDD) in Saint-Antoine Hospital where screening of men under 30 was recently implemented. It also aimed to describe risk factors in order to better screen the population in general practice. All male subjects attending CeGIDD between the 4th of April and the 5th of July 2016 were offered a Ct test, after filling out a questionnaire with a doctor during a consult. A PCR Ct was performed on a urine sample. During the time of the study, 454 men consulted, 398 urine samples were analyzed, 15 were positive for Ct. Prevalence of Ct infection was 3,8 % and 4,3 % among men under 30 years old. Eighty percent of the positive male were asymptomatic. Having had unprotected sex in the last 6 weeks and showing symptoms were risks factors. These results support the need of screening asymptomatic men under 30 in CeGIDD, and men at high risk in general practice.
