Twelve isolates of Trichomonas recovered from symptomatic cases and 3 isolates recovered form asymptomatic cases were studied for their pathogenicity in mice using the subcutaneous route of inoculation. The average abscess size produced on the 7th day of inoculation by the strains recovered from symptomatic patients was 413 mm3 as compared to 141 mm3 produced by the strains from asymptomatic cases. The standard reference strain showed average abscess area of 358.5 mm3. Histopathological findings of the infected area correlated with the degree of infection in mice.
