Prevention and control
The organism is sensitive to penicillin, tetracycline and other broad-spectrum antibiotics.

The disease in men may vary from inapparent infection to severe pneumonitis with septicemia and death. Most frequently transit influenza like syndrome is observed with nausea, fever, vomiting, chills and headache. Trachoma like follicular conjunctive may be the only sign. Infection is acquired by inhalation of contaminated particles. The agent was isolated from cerebro-spinal fluid of a febrile child exposed to sheep experiencing abortions. The agent was also isolated from human foetus and placenta of aborting women who had contact with sheep, goats and cattle suffering from chlamydial pneumonia or abortions.
