MedLine Citation:
PMID:  6845046     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Antenatal patients free of Trichomonas vaginalis vaginal infection were compared with infected patients, half of whom were treated and half left untreated. The treated group was given benzoylmetronidazole 50 ml (2 g metronidazole equivalent) as a single dose. The mode of treatment was found to be very palatable and highly effective. The birth weights and gestational age at delivery were similar in all three groups.
