Goal: the study of the effectiveness of the method for laboratory diagnostics of urogenital chlamydial infection in patients with chronic form of the disease. Material and methods. The presence of DNAof C. trachomatis was detected by PCR in either genital or extragenital (blood) sites in eighth patients (four men and four women). Results. It is established that in biological material taken from extragenital (blood) sites, C. trachomatis was detected in all patients examined (in 100% of cases), while in clinical samples obtained from genital sites, in seven patients only (87.5%). Conclusion. We found that specific chlamydial DNAcan be detected in extragenital (blood) site, despite the negative reaction in the clinical material from the genital tract of patients with genital chlamydial infection.
