Cytological examination of conjunctival smears obtained from cats with conjunctivitis can reveal the severity and type of inflammation and diagnose conjunctivitis caused by Chlamydophila felis. The diagnosis of chlamydia was made by the study of material taken from the conjunctival sac with a sterile cotton swab by PCR. Material for cytological examination was taken from these cats. Cytological examination of inclusions interpreted as chlamydial, was detected in all cytologic smears from sick cats, and has not been detected in none of healthy cats. Thus, cytological examination is a convenient, non-invasive, easily feasible method, which is suitable for rapid diagnosis of chlamydial conjunctivitis in cats.
