Asymptomatic genital infections due to C. trachomatis represent the major form of chlamydial genital infection in women. The prevalence of asymptomatic urethral infection due to C. trachomatis in men is not as welldocumented. Previous surveys of chlamydial infection in asymptomatic men have been conducted in selected populations of men attending sexually transmitted disease clinics for various nongenitourinary complaints; prevalence rates were 0-7010 . In the present study we evaluated the prevalence of urethral infection due to C. trachomatis in sexuallyactive enlisted men in the U.S. Army when presenting to the troop medical clinic for routine examination.
