1. Chlamydia pneumoniae is anobligate intracellular gram-negative bacterium that infects humans as arespiratory pathogen.2.

Chlamydia and Asthma:
1. Chlamydia pneumoniae has been discussed as apossiblecofactor causingchronic obstructive pulmonary disease(COPD) andasthma. 2. An association of Chlamydia infection with asthma wasfirst described in the early 1990s, and epidemiological andclinical data support the suggestion thatC. pneumoniaeinfection may partly explain the increased incidence of asthma.3. Acute C. pneumoniae infection can initiate andexacerbate asthma and persistent infection may contributeto chronic asthma symptoms in some patients.
