Abstract: Remnant specimen from 1215 women screening for chlamydia/gonorrhea at 4 different venue types (sexually transmitted disease clinics, home-test kit users, juvenile and adult detention) in Los Angeles, California, were tested for Trichomonas vaginalis. Prevalence of T. vaginalis varied by screening population, and concurrent chlamydia or gonorrhea was independently associated with T. vaginalis.
