Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) infection in the lower genital tract can ascend to the upper genital tract, causing pathologies such as hydrosalpinx, a hallmark for tubal infertility in women. However, the mechanisms on how CT ascends and induces hydrosalpinx-causing inflammation in women remain unknown. Chlamydia muridarum (CM) have been extensively used for studying the mechanisms of CT pathogenesis and immunity because intravaginal inoculation with CM in some mice can induce hydrosalpinx similar to that observed in women.
