This guideline aims to provide comprehensive information regarding the management of infections caused by Chlamydia trachomatis in European countries. The recommendations contain important information for physicians and laboratory staff working with sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and/or STI-related issues. Individual European countries may be required to make minor national adjustments to this guideline as some of the tests or specific local data may not be accessible, or because of specific laws.
