El propósito de la revisión es el diagnóstico y tratamiento tempranos. Los exámenes de revisión por lo general se administran a personas sin síntomas presentes, pero que podrían estar en alto riesgo de ciertas enfermedades o condiciones.

La revisión para detectar clamidia se realiza sólo para las formas por transmisión sexual y es especialmente importante para mujeres embarazadas para prevenir infecciones neonatales.

Indicaciones de Revisión

Cualquier persona puede contraer clamidia después de tener contacto sexual sin protección con alguien que esté infectado. Todas las mujeres embarazadas y cualquier persona con alguna enfermedad de transmisión sexual debería sospechar tener una infección por clamidia. Todos aquellos que no son tratados de rutina deberían ser revisados.
