Candidiasis, Bacterial Vaginosis, Trichomoniasis and Other Vaginal Conditions Affecting the Vulva

A significant number of women will not fit the “traditional” diagnosis of candidiasis, bacterial vaginosis, or trichomoniasis, and these conditions are discussed, as well as desquamative inflammatory vaginitis, group B streptococcus (GBS) vag initis, leptothrix, cytolytic vag inosis, lactobacillosis, vaginal atrophy and the newer entity of aerobicvaginitis.

Clindamycin to reduce preterm birth in a low resource setting: a randomised placebo‐controlled clinical trial

To determine whether oral clindamycin reduces the risk of preterm birth (PTB) in women with abnormal vaginal microflora as evidenced by a vaginal pH ≥5.0, a large number of studies have found it to be safe and effective.

High‐dose nifuratel for simple and mixed aerobic vaginitis: A single‐center prospective open‐label cohort study

The efficacy and safety of two nifuratel dosages for the treatment of aerobic vaginitis (AV) were compared and one of the dosages proved to be more effective than the other.


The outcomes reflected higher vaginal infection frequency in the sexually active females who were at the younger stage of age, with an increasing age, there was a decrease in the positive trends of culture frequency.

Study of Vaginitis in Reproductive Age Group at THQ Hospital

Results of this study showed highest frequency of vaginal infections among young sexually active females and the frequency of culture positivity seems to decline progressively with increasing age.

Aerobic vaginitis – An underdiagnosed cause of vaginal discharge – Narrative review

The condition’s epidemiology, risk factors and suspected aetiology, symptoms and signs, and the latest evidence-backed approach to diagnosis and treatment are reviewed.

Vulvovestibular Syndrome and Vaginal Microbiome: A Simple Evaluation

It is found that vulvodinic patients had statistically lower Lactobacilli and higher total Fungi concentration and new therapeutic strategies for approaching the VVS are suggested.

Vulvovaginitis Prevalence Among Women in Gondar, Northwest Ethiopia: Special Emphasis on Aerobic Vaginitis Causing Bacterial Profile, Antimicrobial Susceptibility Pattern, and Associated Factors

The high burden of bacterial vaginosis and aerobic vaginitis was reported and regular screening of women using microbiological diagnosis should be promoted.


Results of present showed a higher percentage of aerobic vaginitis than previously reported, which was mild in most cases, and most common age group was 26-35 years.



A randomised controlled trial of vaginal clindamycin for early pregnancy bacterial vaginosis

To determine whether treatment of bacterial vaginosis with vaginal clindamycin affects pregnancy outcome, a large number of women with BV and women without BV who have had previous vaginal or laparoscopic mesh placement surgery are tested.

Impact of metronidazole therapy on preterm birth in women with bacterial vaginosis flora (Gardnerella vaginalis): a randomised, placebo controlled trial

Objective To ascertain whether metronidazole treatment of women with a heavy growth of Gardnerella vaginalis during mid‐pregnancy would reduce the risk of spontaneous preterm birth.

Definition of a type of abnormal vaginal flora that is distinct from bacterial vaginosis: aerobic vaginitis

The objective to define an entity of abnormal vaginal flora: aerobic vaginitis is to establish a database of known cases of this type of vaginal infection and establish a treatment protocol.

Treatment of bacterial vaginosis in pregnancy with a lactate gel.

Local treatment with a low-pH lactate gel intermittently restores the normal vaginal acidity and facilitates recolonization with lactobacilli, and may be preferable to oral antimicrobial therapy, especially during pregnancy.

Predictive value for preterm birth of abnormal vaginal flora, bacterial vaginosis and aerobic vaginitis during the first trimester of pregnancy

Abnormal vaginal flora before 14 gestational weeks is a risk factor for preterm birth and the presence of aerobic microorganisms and an inflammatory response in the vagina may also be important risk factors.

Vaginal infection and preterm labour

To study the vaginal flora of women in preterm labour and determine whether the presence of specific vaginal microflora is significantly associated with onset of PTL, a large number of studies have found that it is.

Effect of Daily Vaginal Disinfection on Duration of Gestation after Premature Rupture of the Membranes and on Infant Outcome

The effects of daily vaginal disinfection on the interval between premature rupture of the membranes (PROM) and delivery and on infant outcome are examined.

Correlation of Local Interleukin‐1beta Levels with Specific IgA Response Against Gardnerella vaginalis Cytolysin in Women with Bacterial Vaginosis

PROBLEM: Mucosal immune system activation may represent a critical determinant of adverse sequelae correlated with bacterial vaginosis, as HIV sexual transmission, upper genital tract infections,

Continuous electronic fetal monitoring is appropriate in cases of intraamniotic infection, and providers should be prepared for neonatal resuscitation, early neonatal intravenous antibiotics, and respiratory support at delivery.
