Resumen

En el presente estudio se evaluó la asociación entre Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) y Neisseriae gonorrhoeae (NG), utilizando la técnica de COBAS AMPLICOR CT/NG Molecular System, en muestras de orina de 355 mujeres con un promedio de edad de 23.9 años; 20 muestras fueron positivas para CT, informándose una prevalencia de de 5.63%. Aunque estudios epidemiológicos han reportado relación entre la infección por Chlamydia trachomatis y las causadas por otros microorganismos como Neisseriae gonorrhoeae; en este estudio no se encontró asociación. Factores como el tipo de muestra y la presencia de inhibidores en la orina disminuyen la sensibilidad en la detección de Neisseriae gonorrhoeae.
