OBJECTIVE To define an entity of abnormal vaginal flora: aerobic vaginitis. [...] Key MethodDESIGN Observational study. SETTING University Hospital Gasthuisberg, Leuven, Belgium. SAMPLE 631 women attending for routine prenatal care or attending vaginitis clinic. METHODS Samples were taken for fresh wet mount microscopy of vaginal fluid, vaginal cultures and measurement of lactate, succinate and cytokine levels in vaginal fluid.Expand
Bacterial Vaginosis Diagnosis, Prevalence, and Treatment
Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) is a disorder of unknown etiology, characterized by a foul smelling vaginal discharge, loss or reduction of the normal vaginal Lactobacilli, and overgrowth of other anaerobExpand
New concepts in the etiology of bacterial vaginosis
  • J. Schwebke
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Current infectious disease reports
  • 2009
TLDR
Controversy about sexual transmission, microbial pathogens, and heterogeneity of BV as a disease entity are discussed. Expand
Predictive value for preterm birth of abnormal vaginal flora, bacterial vaginosis and aerobic vaginitis during the first trimester of pregnancy
TLDR
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. Expand
Maternal risk factors for abnormal vaginal flora during pregnancy
  • C. Tibaldi, N. Cappello, +4 authors C. Benedetto
  • Medicine
  • International journal of gynaecology and obstetrics: the official organ of the International Federation of Gynaecology and Obstetrics
  • 2016
TLDR
To determine the prevalence of abnormal vaginal flora during pregnancy and associated maternal risk factors, a large number of patients were diagnosed with atypical vaginal flora in the first trimester of pregnancy. Expand
Management of Aerobic Vaginitis
TLDR
The therapeutic choice for ‘aerobic vaginitis’ should take into consideration an antibiotic characterized by an intrinsic activity against the majority of bacteria of fecal origin, bactericidal effect and poor/absent interference with the vaginal microbiota. Expand
ASSOCIATIONS BETWEEN FOUR DIFFERENT CHARACTERISTICS AND VAGINITIDES/VAGINOSES IN WOMEN WITH CHRONIC VAGINAL COMPLAINTS
TLDR
Vaginal symptoms are the most common reason for visiting a specialized obstetric and gynecological clinic and the traditional diagnosis of the syndrome “vaginal fluorine” is still challenging clinical experts and microbiologists. Expand
Aerobic vaginitis in pregnancy
TLDR
Aerobic vaginitis in pregnancy is associated with high maternal morbidity and high maternal mortality in women of childbearing age and this research aims to clarify the mechanisms behind this association. Expand
Candidiasis, Bacterial Vaginosis, Trichomoniasis and Other Vaginal Conditions Affecting the Vulva
TLDR
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.

Diagnosis and Management of Bacterial Vaginosis and Other Types of Abnormal Vaginal Bacterial Flora: A Review
  • G. Donders
  • Medicine
  • Obstetrical & gynecological survey
  • 2010
TLDR
An overgrowth of predominantly anaerobic organisms in the vagina leads to a replacement of lactobacilli and an increase in vaginal pH, and antibiotic and non-antibiotic treatment approaches discussed. Expand
[Aerobic vaginitis--diagnostic problems and treatment].
TLDR
The diagnostic criteria and treatment of aerobic vaginitis--AV--have been summarized in this review and an optimal treatment scheme for AV, which includes antibacterial agents and simultaneously normalizes the vaginal ecosystem, has been established. Expand

TLDR
Eight cases of a newly described type of vaginitis, which appears in women with normal estrogen levels, which resembles atrophic vag in many respects, although it appears inWomen with normal testosterone levels are reported. Expand
Can group B streptococci cause symptomatic vaginitis?
TLDR
It is speculated that GBS-vaginitis may be a possible disease entity and that the immunologic response is somehow selectively hampered in such patients. Expand

TLDR
Evidence suggests a microbial, possibly gram-positive coccal, cause for this syndrome, although a specific bacterial species responsible for all cases has not been identified, represents an uncommon cause of purulent vaginitis with unique clinical and laboratory characteristics. Expand
Cytolytic vaginosis.
TLDR
Cytolytic vaginosis is characterized by pruritus, dyspareunia, vulvar dysuria, and cyclical increase in symptoms more pronounced during the luteal phase, which results in telephone requests for medication from patients instead of an office consultation. Expand

TLDR
Application of practical diagnostic criteria for standard clinical use should assist in clinical management of nonspecific vaginitis and in further study of the microbiologic and biochemical correlates and the pathogenesis of this mild but quite prevalent disease. Expand

TLDR
When the growth requirements for the demonstration of in vitro inhibition for GBS or lack thereof are met in vivo, the in vivo observations are consistent with those projected from the in vitro data. Expand
Pathogenesis of abnormal vaginal bacterial flora.
TLDR
Both disturbed lactobacillary grade and the presence of increasing vaginal leukocytosis were correlated with lactobACillary substrate (lactate) concentration, pH, and the concentrations of a variety of cytokines. Expand
Enumeration of clue cells in rehydrated air‐dried vaginal wet smears for the diagnosis of bacterial vaginosis
TLDR
In a busy multi-physician setting, the scoring of clue cells in stored and rehydrated smears can be used to obtain consistent readings for wet-smear diagnostics, thus simplifying teaching and increasing the utility of wet smears in clinical research. Expand
GARDNERELLA VAGINALIS, ANAEROBES, AND VAGINAL DISCHARGE
TLDR
Quantitative microbiological investigations were carried out on vaginal secretions from 82 selected women, finding that Anaerobic bacteria and G. vaginalis may well act together to cause non-specific vaginal discharge; vaginal pH testing serves to aid accurate diagnosis. Expand
Characteristics of three vaginal flora patterns assessed by Gram stain among pregnant women
TLDR
It is concluded that there are two primary stable vaginal flora patterns (normal flora or bacterial vaginosis) and a third less distinct transitional flora pattern between these two. Expand
