Aerobic vaginitis (AV) is a vaginal infectious condition which is often confused with bacterial vaginosis (BV) or with the intermediate microflora as diagnosed by Nugent’s method to detect BV on Gram-stained specimens. However, although both conditions reflect a state of lactobacillary disruption in the vagina, leading to an increase in pH, BV and AV differ profoundly. While BV is a noninflammatory condition composed of a multiplex array of different anaerobic bacteria in high quantities, AV is… Expand
Aerobic vaginitis: no longer a stranger.
TLDR
AV is characterized by abnormal (dysbiotic) vaginal microflora containing aerobic, enteric bacteria, variable levels of vaginal inflammation and deficient epithelial maturation, and can co-occur with other entities, such as BV and candidiasis. Expand
How to diagnose and treat aerobic and desquamative inflammatory vaginitis
TLDR
A practical approach to investigating and managing abnormal vaginal discharge in a specialist setting where near-patient microscopy is available is focused on. Expand
Aerobic vaginitis – An underdiagnosed cause of vaginal discharge – Narrative review
TLDR
The condition’s epidemiology, risk factors and suspected aetiology, symptoms and signs, and the latest evidence-backed approach to diagnosis and treatment are reviewed. Expand
Vaginal Microbiomes Associated With Aerobic Vaginitis and Bacterial Vaginosis
TLDR
The physiological characteristics that determine the well-being of reproductive health in women are explored and the distinct versus shared characteristics of BV and AV are explored, which are commonly associated with increased risk for preterm delivery. Expand
SilTech: A New Approach to Treat Aerobic Vaginitis
TLDR
SylTechTM vaginal capsules is an effective therapeutic option for patients with AV, and most women with AV were cured with one course of therapy. Expand
The Evolving Facets of Bacterial Vaginosis: Implications for HIV Transmission
TLDR
This Perspectives article aims to clarify the varied terms used to describe the cervicovaginal microbiota and its “nonoptimal” state, under the overarching term of BV, to move toward language standardization in future literature that facilitates a better understanding of the impact of Bv on FRT immunology and risk of sexually transmitted infections, including HIV. Expand
Abnormal vaginal microbioma is associated with severity of localized provoked vulvodynia. Role of aerobic vaginitis and Candida in the pathogenesis of vulvodynia
TLDR
Detailed study of the vaginal microflora in patients demonstrates that the most severe patients suffer more from AV and less from Candida, and abnormalities need to be actively looked for and corrected before considering surgery or other therapies. Expand
Microbiota in vaginal health and pathogenesis of recurrent vulvovaginal infections: a critical review
TLDR
An attempt has been made to analyze vaginal microbiota (VMB) from scratch and to provide an update on its current understanding in relation to health and common RVVI i.e. bacterial vaginosis, vulvovaginal candidiaisis and Trichomoniasis, making the present review first of its kind. Expand
Recurrent Vulvovaginal Infections: Etiology, Diagnosis, Treatment and Management
TLDR
Systematic investigations in this particular area can provide better understanding of pathophysiology of RVVI, further contributing to novel target recognition for more proficient therapeutic advances against these clinically relevant infections. Expand
Abnormal vaginal flora in symptomatic non-pregnant and pregnant women in a Greek hospital: a prospective study
TLDR
Clinicians should include AV in the differential diagnosis of vaginitis, while microbiologists should take into account the growth of aerobic bacteria in vaginal cultures originating from women with microscopic findings of AV. Expand

Diagnostic and therapeutic advancements for aerobic vaginitis
TLDR
The early diagnosis and treatment of AV during pregnancy significantly improves perinatal outcomes and the application of topical probiotics can restore the vaginal flora and reduce the recurrence of AV. 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
Sialidase activity in aerobic vaginitis is equal to levels during bacterial vaginosis.
TLDR
A more intense inflammatory host response occurs for AV than for BV when compared with normal flora, which indicates that both abnormal vaginal flora types can be harmful to the maintenance of a healthy vaginal environment. Expand
Aerobic vaginal pathogens and their sensitivity pattern.
TLDR
The present study has been conducted especially to elucidate this type of aerobic vaginal isolates and their culture and sensitivity towards currently used antibiotics, and demands that the patients with gynaecological symptoms be investigated thoroughly. Expand
Aerobic vaginitis and mixed infections: comparison of clinical and laboratory findings
TLDR
AV is a common vaginal infection, and it is often mixed with other infections, especially VVC, BV and TV, and an appropriate course should be selected taking the severity of AV into consideration. Expand
Management of persistent vaginitis.
TLDR
Evaluation should include a symptom-specific history, careful vulvar and vaginal examination, and office-based tests (vaginal pH, amine test, saline and 10% potassium hydroxide microscopy) that are frequently crucial to obtaining a correct diagnosis. Expand
