Abstract

Vaginal infections during pregnancy are a risk factor for intrauterine growth retardation, preterm birth, and perinatal mortality or morbidity. Studies of pregnant and non-pregnant women have shown an association between Trichomonas vaginalis and Mycoplasma hominis infections. In an African area with a high prevalence of trichomoniasis, we noticed anti- Mycoplasma antibodies in an unexpectedly high number of women with anti- Trichomonas antibodies. Because an electron-microscopy study showed Mycoplasma organisms in food vacuoles of protozoa, we investigated the cohabitation of the two micro-organisms in the vagina.
