Clinical significance:
Lymphogranuloma venerum (LGV) is a clinical syndrome caused by infection with C. trachomatis which typically includes genital bubonic disease. The serologic detection of C. trachomatis infection is complicated by the presence of crossreactive antibody to other Chlamydia species or nonspecific stimulation of anti-Chlamydia Ab. To differentiate C. trachomatis infection from other Chlamydia species, a panel of Chlamydia is tested for the determination of specific antibody titers
