New LGV Chlamydia strain detected.

A new strain of Chlamydia called LGV (lymphogranuloma venereum) has been detected.

The new chlamydia can infect both sexes however most cases detected so far have been in bi-sexual and gay males.

Some older PCR machines used to detect chlamydia are not registering this strain of chlamydia and the low figures presenting at this time are due more to the LGV strain not being detected rather than the real number of infections.

Chlamydia LGV has differing symptoms to the present detectable chlamydia. These include symptoms similar to irritable bowel with painful stomach cramps however cases also present with swollen lymph nodes in the groin and genital and rectal ulcers.
