Next medical illustration of This 3D bioscape features a very common STD known as trichomoniasis that is caused by the single-celled parasitic organism Trichomonas vaginalis.
The organism has a pear-shaped trophozoite form when not in contact with male or female urogential tract epithelium, but once it touches a host cell it assumes a closely-applied amoeboid form that is cytotoxic, causing inflammation and  host tissue damage.
