Trichomonas vaginalis is a protozoan parasite of the urogenital tract in men and women and causes a sexually transmitted disease, trichomoniasis, in about half of infected women. Infections are associated with pelvic inflammatory disease, adverse pregnancy outcomes, infertility, an increased incidence of aggressive prostate cancers, and an increase in HIV-1 transmission. Learn more in the article by Conrad et al. in the January 2013 issue of Trends in Parasitology.

Trichomonas foetus (via)

Trichomonas foetus is a single-celled protozoan that infects the bovine reproductive tract and the intestinal tract of cats. Cows are infected by bulls that harbor the parasite on their foreskin. The resultant infection of cows can result in infertility, pyometra, and embryonic death and abortion. (More)

Toxoplasma Gondii Trichomonas Vaginalis
Human Toxoplasmosis- Primary problem is a congenital infection of fetus, stillbirth or severe vision or severe brain damage. About 98% of cases of Toxoplasmosis are acquired through Congenital Toxoplasmosis. Definitive host- Domestic and wild cats.Intermediate host- Human, birds, pigs, rodents, and sheep. OOCYST in the feces of cat- Cat ingests tissue cysts containing bradyzoites. Parasites (sporozoites) multiply in enterocytes- Parasites rupture enterocytes & transported via lymphatics and disseminated hematogenously throughout the tissue.Cats (Mainly domestic and wild cats)- Asexual and sexual division is intracellular, Oocysts in feces. Humans (Mammals)- Asexual tissue cycle, tachyzoites and tissue cyst = bradyzoites. Congenital: transmission to the fetus only occurs during an acute infection of the mother.Acquired: ingestion of sporulated oocyst, tissue cyst- organ transplantation or blood transfusion (rare). Reactivation of infection- Immunocompromised e.g. AIDS, Immunosuppression e.g.drugs Toxoplasma is an opportunistic pathogen. Pathogenesis and Symptoms- Infection in immunocompetent (healthy individuals) is generally an asymptomatic infection. congenital toxoplasmosis- 76% of infected infants had ocular lesions (retinochoroiditis), Vision problems are very common, 51% had neurological involvement (intracerebral calcifications), 26% had either- hydrocephalus or michrocephaly.

Au milieu du CHANCRE-evassé, les moines agitent leurs s-HERPES-suyant la sueur a-SIDA-ccumulée sur leurs habits. Le BLENNO-ra jamais la chance de pousser sans cela. Au loin, le bonze supérieur les surveille, s’adonnant au TRICHOMONAS-tère tranquille où l’on se nourrit de GRANULOMES-éopathiques à base de sauge et de CYSTITE-ou. D’autres jeunes bonzes, CANDIDA-rrivés la veille, accomplissent un travail de Sy-SYPHILIS le tapis ancestral étalé sous le gon-GONORRHÉE-les doigts dans la peint-URETRITE-urant quelques pinceaux, le moine-peintre retranspose la scène dans son é-CHLAMYDIA-phane, mi-obscur. LEUCORRHÉE-graphier, tel un BALANITE-roi au Brésil, voilà ce qu’il veut faire de ce moment. Plus loin, deux a-MYCOSES gaiement : « Ce peintre, i’m-HEPATITE-peint c’qu’i’ veut ! Avec les tons CHAUDE PISSE-aro en plus ! Mais, bon trêve de bavardages, la prière ne va pas tarder ! A c-CONDYLOME sera prononcé par les nouveaux aujourd’hui ! ».
