Trichomoniasis caused by Trichomonas vaginalis is the most
prevalent non- viral sexually transmitted disease. InPouch TV
culture is highly sensitive in diagnosing the disease.
Unfortunately, researches made in Libya to study the prevalence of
trichomoniasis are very few; also diagnosis is based only on
clinical manifestations which could be confused with those of other
sexually transmitted diseases. Hence, the present work was aimed to
determine the prevalence of Trichomonas vaginalis infection in
women suffering from vaginal discharge in Zawia district, Libya,
also to compare between InPouch TV culture, wet mount examination
and Giemsa staining for the diagnosis of trichomoniasis. It was
found that infection rate was relatively high in the examined
patients. InPouch TV culture was the most sensitive method and
detect 36.7% positive patients in the examined area. Also, its
specificity was 100%. It is concluded that infection rate of
Trichomonas vaginalis in Libya is relatively high, so there must be
a policy decision to increase awareness of this disease. It is
recommended to use this culture as a routine method for diagnosis
in the laboratory.
