Trichomonas vaginalis Associated with Chronic Penile Ulcers and Multiple Urethral Fistulas.
Am J Trop Med Hyg. 2015 May; 92(5):943-4.AJ

Abstract

The case of a 29-year-old, HIV-infected man presenting with Trichomonas vaginalis (TV)-associated chronic penile ulcers and multiple urethral fistulas is described. To our knowledge, this is the first description of chronic TV infection being implicated as the probable cause of a destructive lesion leading to sinus drainage and fistula formation.
