Chlamydophila Pneumoniae

Recommended Posts

Chlamydophila pneumoniae has been implicated with a possible role in the etiology of rosacea and remains another theory to add to the long list.

At least one report suggests Chlamydophila pneumoniaeas a cause of rosacea and states, “These preliminary data suggest the need for further investigation with clinical trials to study long-term tolerability and efficacy and also strongly implicate C pneumoniae in the pathogenesis of acne rosacea.” [1]

There is some discussion on this at RF [2] and at the RRF Wiki. [3]
