Genital Mycoplasma, Shigellosis, Zika, Pubic Lice, and Other Sexually Transmitted Infections: Neither Gone nor Forgotten.

ABSTRACT: Most estimates of the combined burden and cost of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the United States have focused on eight common STIs with established national surveillance strategies (chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, trichomoniasis, genital herpes, human papillomavirus, and sexually transmitted HIV and hepatitis B). However, over 30 STIs are primarily sexually transmitted or sexually transmissible. In this manuscript, we review what is known about the burden of "other STIs" in the United States, including those where sexual transmission is not the primary transmission route of infection. Although the combined burden of these other STIs may be substantial, accurately estimating their burden due to sexual transmission is difficult due to diagnostic and surveillance challenges. Developing better estimates will require innovative strategies, such as leveraging existing surveillance systems, partnering with public health and academic researchers outside of the STI field, and developing methodology to estimate the frequency of sexual transmission, particularly for new and emerging STIs.Monitoring the burden of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the United States is critical to inform and evaluate interventions and guide public health action. Most estimates of the combined burden of STIs in the United States have focused on eight common STIs with established national surveillance strategies (chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, trichomoniasis, genital herpes, human papillomavirus [HPV], and sexually-transmitted HIV and hepatitis B); (1-5) however, there are over 30 pathogens that are sexually transmitted or transmissible (6-8) and these combined estimates underestimate the total burden and economic impact of STIs. "Other STIs" include infections that are primarily sexually transmitted in adults, but their public health significance has not been well established or there are no specific prevention or control programs for them (e.g., pubic lice, Mycoplasma genitalium) and infections where sexual transmission is not the primary transmission route (e.g., shigella, Zika). In this manuscript, we describe what is known about the burden (e.g., prevalence or incidence) of "other STIs" in the US based on a review of published manuscripts and surveillance reports and identify strategies that could be used to better estimate their burden.
