ABSTRACT: The role of chlamydial infection in abortions is controversial and very little information is available from India on this aspect. Sera of 140 women with spontaneous (70), and elective abortions (70), and 168 women with full term normal delivery were evaluated for antichlamydial IgM/IgG. About one fourth with elective and nearly half of those with spontaneous abortions were seropositive or antichlamydial IgM as against 15.5 percent women with full term normal delivery. Four per cent of women with spontaneous abortions were seropositive for chlamydial IgG. Recent chlamydial infection seems to be significantly high in early pregnancy. Therefore, screening and appropriate antibiotic treatment would be beneficial in preventing post-abortal sequelae like pelvic inflammatory disease and secondary infertility.
