new cases of lymphogranuloma venereum in industrialized nations

Lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV) is a sexually transmitted disease that's often seen as a tropical disease. But outbreaks in HIV patients and in men who have sex with men are showing up in Europe and the U.S.
It's caused by a more invasive strain of Chlamydia trachomatis. This strain seems to prefer the lymph tissue.
