In addition to the trophozoite, pseudocyst is another morphological form which is recently identified among genitourinary trichomonads. Although, this pseudocyst is competent to divide, its role in Trichomonas life cycle has not yet been confirmed. In this study the ability of intra-vaginally inoculated T. vaginalis pseudocysts to induce trichomoniasis in infected mice was evaluated in comparison to the trophozoites. Pseudocysts formation was induced by using thermal-freezing cycle method. The… CONTINUE READING
