If it remains undiagnosed, it can lead to chronic health conditions such as arthritis, the building up of plaque in arteries, and asthma. Swelling in the brain and heart can also occur. These bacteria can also cause respiratory tract infections like pneumonia. So, you must go to the doctor, who will advise you about the test if required.

Chlamydia pneumoniae is a chronic infection that can lead to severe health conditions such as arthritis, asthma, and atherosclerosis. Also, an undetected infection can lead to swelling in the brain, Encephalitis, and swelling of the heart known as myocarditis. The bacteria can also cause respiratory tract infections like pneumonia that can damage the lining of the respiratory tract like the windpipe, throat, and lungs. Hence, it is pretty essential to go for the test.
