Abstract

The vaginal contamination with trichomoniasis infection was examined in a group of 397 female prisoners from January 1980 until December 1983. The infestation frequency was 20,65%--which is approximately twice as high as the average infestation rate of the remaining female population. The highest occurrence of infestation in our patient group was found in women under 20 years of age, which is just the opposite of the remaining female population where the most frequent infestation occurs in women between 35 and 40 years of age.
