To the Editor: Dr Anttila and colleagues1 reported that C trachomatis serotype G was most strongly associated with subsequent development of cervical SCC, and that increasing numbers of exposures to different serotypes of C trachomatis also increased the risk. However, the direct etiological role of C trachomatis serotype G and superinfection of different serotypes in the pathogenesis and development of SCC is still unknown.
