dc.description.abstractThis study compared 4 different diagnostic methods for the detection of Trichomonas vaginalis in vaginal swab specimens from women attending a hospital in Dohuk in Iraq. A total of 425 vaginal swabs were obtained from women complaining of vaginal discharge associated with vaginitis, cervicitis and pelvic inflammatory disease. The results showed that 10 [‎2.4%]‎ swabs were positive for T. vaginalis by wet smear preparation, 15 [‎3.5%]‎ by haematoxylin-eosin stained smear, 17 [‎4.0%]‎ by Papanicolaou stain and 23 [‎5.4%]‎ using Diamond modified culture. The rate varied significantly by age and was highest in young women aged 20-25 years [‎7.6%]‎ and lowest in the age group 36-40 years [‎2.2%]‎. The highest rate of infection with T. vaginalis was detected by Diamond modified cultureEN
