Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate recent advances in our understanding of the clinical relevance, diagnosis, and treatment of vaginal infections, and to determine an efficient and effective method of evaluating this clinical problem in the outpatient setting, DATA SOURCES: Relevant papers on vaginitis limited to the English language obtained through a MEDLINE search for the years 1985 to 1997 were reviewed, DATA SYNTHESIS: Techniques that enable the identification of the various strains of candida have helped lead to a better understanding of the mechanisms of recurrent candida infection, From this information a rationale for the treatment of recurrent disease can be developed. Bacterial vaginosis hasbeen associated with complications, including upper genital tract infection, preterm delivery, and wound infection. Women undergoing pelvicsurgery, procedures in pregnancy, or pregnant women at risk of preterm delivery should be evaluated for bacterial vaginosis to decrease therate of complications associated with this condition, New, more standardized criteria for the diagnosis of bacterial vaginosis may improve diagnostic consistency among clinicians and comparability of study results, Use of topical therapies in the treatment of bacterial vaginosisare effective and associated with fewer side effects than systemic medication, Trichomonas vaginalis, although decreasing in incidence, hasbeen associated with upper genital tract infection, Therapy of T. vaginalis infection has been complicated by an increasing incidence of resistance to metronidazole. CONCLUSIONS:Vaginitis is a common medical problem in women that is associated with significant morbidity and previously unrecognized complications. Research in recent years has improved diagnostic tools as well as treatment modalities for all forms of vaginitis.
