Prevalence of trachoma in chronic conjunctivitis, Birjand, Islamic Republic of Iran


, : Prevalence of trachoma in chronic conjunctivitis, Birjand, Islamic Republic of Iran. Eastern Mediterranean Health Journal 8(2/3): 350-353

Between January 1999 and December 2000, eighty consecutive patients with chronic conjunctivitis presenting in the eye clinic of Birjand University of Medical Sciences, Birjand, Iran were assessed for trachoma and chlamydial infection. Direct fluorescent antibody test was used to assess trachoma and Giemsa staining to detect chlamydial infection. Trachoma was detected in 10% of the patients and chlamydial infection detected in 6.3%. The results were similar for both sexes.
