Abstract

Metronidazole-resistant vaginal trichomoniasis remains a major therapeutic challenge. Two women with symptomatic metronidazole-resistant trichomoniasis had multiple unsuccessful courses of therapy with a broad array of medications. Both patients finally responded to combination treatment with intravaginal paromomycin cream and high-dose oral tinidazole.
