Neonatal infection with Trichomonas vaginalis is an unusual occurrence. We present a case of T. vaginalis found on routine urinalysis in a five-day-old neonate born at 29 weeks gestational age. The patient was treated with metronidazole and had complete resolution of the infection. This report discusses the significance of diagnosis and treatment of T. vaginalis in the neonate.
