According to the national chlamydia surveillance network Rénachla, Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) infection is the most common sexual bacterial infection in the general population with more than 120,000 cases diagnosed in France in 2021 and, according to the Sentinels network, a constant increase between 2000 to 2021 [1]. According to the Natchla study, in 2006, the prevalence was maximum between 18 and 24 years of age in women and between 20 and 29 years of age in men, with a positivity rate of 8.3% in women and 4.4%. in humans [2]. Due to its frequency and potential complications, emphasis must be placed on prevention and early treatment, particularly in young people.
