CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF TRICHOMONAS VAGINALIS PARASITE IN CURTEA DE ARGEŞ POPULATION

The present study, conducted in 2008-2010 to the Curtea de Argeş population releaved an incidence of infestation with

Trichomonas vaginalis of 46.29% on the investigated cases. There are significant differences related to the gender

distribution and most cases come from urban areas. The incidence of infested women is higher in comparison with the

infested men because the trichomoniasis at men is usually asymptomatic and remains undiagnosed. It is required a

training and information campaign in schools, but also an implementation of programs at a national level for the

testing of population, especially to identify the trichomoniasis at persons between 15 and 40 years.
