Excerpt
Introduction Trachoma is caused by the recurrent, chronic infection of the eye with Chlamydia trachomatis serotypes A, B, Ba or C, and progresses from inflammation to conjunctival scarring, lid deformities, corneal abrasion and visual impairment. It is the most common infectious cause of blindness, and is responsible for an estimated 15% of global blindness (1). Active trachoma affects an estimated 150 million people (2), and about 5.5 million are blind as a consequence of the disease. Blinding trachoma mainly occurs in rural, resource-poor areas of Africa and Asia (for a review of risk factors see Mabey et al. (3)). The importance of within-household transmission is supported by epidemiological observations (4, 5) and by serotyping and genotyping results (6–8).
