Abstract

Chlamydia pneumoniae (CP) is a bacterium that in recent years has been investigated as an etiologic agent for atherosclerosis. It is a ubiquitous microorganism that has been isolated in various regions of the vascular system and its prevalence is about 10% in the patient population. This study involved a group of 43 patients (27 men, 16 women, mean age 68 years) who underwent carotid endarterectomy. About 9.3% of the patients yielded plaques that tested positive for the DNA genome of Chlamydia pneumoniae.
