Abstract

Lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV) is a systemic sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by Chlamydia trachomatis (L serovars L1, L2 or L3). Since 2003, several outbreaks of rectal LGV affecting men who have sex with men (MSM) have occurred in western Europe [1]. The first case in Spain was confirmed in Barcelona in 2005 [2], but no further cases have been detected in this city since until September 2007. We briefly summarise the characteristics of the LGV cases diagnosed at the outpatient STI clinic in Barcelona between September 2007 and April 2008.
