Sex and age specific infection rates of urogenital parasitoses were studied in unselected population of North Western Nigeria. Urinary schistosomiasis was found to be more common in males and in 10-19 years age group. The association of haematuria and proteinuria with urinary swchistosomiasis was observed. Trichomonas vaginalis infection was more common in women attending the Special Treatment Clinic for sexually transmitted diseases than those attending the out patient departments. The 20-29 years group was affected and a substantial number of them were asymptomatic. Presence of pus cells and epithelial cells in urine were good indicators for infection.
