Chlamydiaceae infections among 101 villagers residing in a trachoma-endemic region of southwestern Nepal identified by the ArrayTube (Alere Technologies, Jena, Germany), real-time PCR, and ompA genotyping. The number and percentage for each infection are shown. Single infections included each species and the designated ompA genotypes (n = 71). C. trachomatis (Ct) trachoma strain C predominated, but single infections with C. psittaci (Cps), C. pecorum (Cp), and C. suis (Cs) also occurred). Mixed
