Figure 2. Chlamydia trachomatis reports, Sweden, 1991–2007. The number of persons examined and cases detected in 2007, when diagnostic tests for chlamydia had been changed, is in line with the increasing trend from 2004 and before. The figures for 2005 and 2006 reflect the failure to detect cases of the new chlamydia variant in some counties.
