Case 3: Sexually Transmitted Diseases Screening in HIV-infected Individuals

You answered:

D Men and women who report receptive anal intercourse should receive screening for rectal chlamydia.

This answer is correct. The patient’s report of occasional receptive anal sex should prompt screening for rectal infection with C. trachomatis and N. gonorrhoeae. Although both of these STDs can cause clinically evident proctitis, most rectal infections are asymptomatic.
