Description: Caption:
This image depicts a colposcopic view of a female patient’s cervix, which had manifested signs of erosion and erythema, due to a Chlamydia trachomatis infection. If left untreated, chlamydia infection can cause severe, costly reproductive, and other health problems. Both short- and long-term consequences can ensue, including pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), infertility, and potentially fatal, ectopic tubal pregnancies.
