57 patients with viral condylomata of the uterine cervix and/or cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) were examined evaluating the presence of Chlamydia Trachomatis (Ct) cervical infection and serum IgG anti-Ct. The prevalence of Ct cervical infection was globally 7.22%, in CIN 3 group the rate was higher (16.67%). In addition, in this group the rate of IgG anti-Ct was significantly higher (66.67% vs 11.76%; p = 0.01) in comparison to the whole group. The role of the association between Human Papillomaviruses and Ct infection was finally discussed.
