Chlamydial infection. Computer illustration of an urethral smear showing infection with the bacteria Chlamydia trachomatis. Chlamydia survive by infecting host cells and forming inclusion bodies, where they reproduce. New bacteria are released by rupturing the host cell. Chlamydia causes non-specific urethritis (NSU), a sexually transmitted disease. The organisms can multiply rapidly in a man's reproductive tract.
