Chlamydiae are nonmotile, obligate intracellular bacteria with a unique life cycle that includes two phases: reticulate and elementary bodies. Chlamydia trachomatis is comprised of two human biovars: the lymphogranuloma venereum, remarkable for its tropism for lymphoid cells and its ability to cause systemic disease, and the trachoma biovar, limited primarily to epithelial cells of mucous membranes and able to cause trachoma, sexually transmitted disease, and neonatal inclusion conjunctivitis and pneumonia.
