Core Tip Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhea are the most common bacterial sexually transmitted infections (STIs), the sequelae of which are among the most costly of any STI except human immunodeficiency virus infection and acquired immune deficiency syndrome. Disease is often asymptomatic in young males, for whom there is a lack of consensus on screening recommendations and who are screened less often than women. Most studies on emergency department screening focus on young females, or group both asymptomatic and symptomatic patients together. We found 6.3% prevalence of asymptomatic Chlamydia by screening adolescent males who were not seeking screening and would likely not otherwise have been tested.
