Clinical and laboratory study of trichomoniasis on 560 symptomatic patients and 40 asymptomatic subjects who were on intra–uterine contraceptive device (IUCD) for a long duration revealed that out of symptomatic patients 10% were positive for T. vaginalis by the vaginal swab and/or urine examination while none of the 40 subjects with IUCD showed any evidence of T, vaginalis infection. While frothy discharge was the commonest (51.7%) clinical sign in positive cases followed by chronic cervicitis (21.4%), pus discharge (10.7%) backache with healthy vagina and cervix (9%), cervicits erosion (5.3%) and pregnancy with while discharge (1.9%). Association of T. vaginalis in the female genital tract and urinary tract was found in 66%. Parasites could be detected in 78.5. 87.5 and 85.7% patients by using wet smear preparation, culture of the vaginal swab and urine examination respectively. Cure rate following metronidazole therapy was 81.8% after first course of therapy and 18.2% after two courses.
