Although not exclusively transmitted through sexual contact, several parasitic infestations and infections may be conveyed sexually. The organisms responsible for some of these conditions include Phthirus pubis, Sarcoptes scabei, Trichomonas vaginalis, Entamoeba histolytica, Giardia lamblia, strongyloides, Enterobius vermicularis, and cryptosporidia. The conditions, their clinical presentations, testing procedures, and recommended treatment regimens are discussed. Treatment must include detailed patient education about the modes of transmission.
