CLINICAL FEATURES

Vaginal trichomoniasis may be asymptomatic or present with a purulent foul smelling vaginal discharge that is yellow-green in colour, and vulvar pruritus or irritation. The vagina and cervix (strawberry cervix) are often inflamed. 15 to 50% of men with T.vaginalis are asymptomatic and usually present as sexual partners of infected women. Some male patients may present with symptoms of urethritis.

COMPLICATIONS

There is increasing evidence that T. vaginalis infection is associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes such as preterm delivery and low birth weight.
