Answer

Chlamydial conjunctivitis and pneumonia are usually treated for a total of 14 days.

Treatment also is indicated for sexual partners of the index case if the time of the last sexual encounter was within 60 days of onset, and it should be considered for longer periods for the last sexual partner. Treatment of chlamydial infection is indicated for patients being treated for gonorrhea, as well.
