Can chlamydia trachomatis be mistaken for chlamydia pneumoniae in a pap test?

No. Chlamydia pneumoniae causes respiratory infection and is transmitted through the air. It is not sexually transmitted. Pap smear is not designed to detect chlamydia infection of any kind. Diagnosis of chladmyida trachomatis is by culture or dna testing. See this site for more information. http://www.mc.vanderbilt.edu/reporter/index.html?id=779.
