Case Study: STI Investigation
The case study pertains to the discussion of the case of Susan Lang, a twenty-four-year-
old Caucasian female presenting to the clinic for regular care.
Answers to Questions
The other information that is needed from the patient Susan Lang includes information
about the patient’s last menstrual period, the amount and pattern of vaginal bleeding for how
long the bleeding continues after coitus, and information about the relationship status of the
patient being monogamous or polygamous to determine if the patient has multiple sex partners.
The testing that will be performed or ordered for the patient includes pregnancy testing,
testing for sexually transmitted infections (STIs), paper smear test, urine complete examination,
and testing of blood including a complete blood count and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR)
as they are markers of infection and inflammation (van Atteveld et al., 2019).
The initial thoughts for diagnosis include that the patient Susan Lang is suffering from a
sexually transmitted infection like chlamydia. Furthermore, the patient should start empirical
antibiotic therapy for chlamydia immediately (Faricy et al., 2012), and the patient’s sexual
partner should immediately undergo assessment and treatment for sexually transmitted
infections.
Primary Diagnosis
The primary diagnosis for the patient is Chlamydia trachomatis, a sexually transmitted
infection. Chlamydia trachomatis is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections
(Shannon, C. L., & Klausner, J. D. (2018).
