Abstract

Vulvovaginitis encompasses few conditions, which may be infectious or inflammatory. The common practice of symptomatic, empiric approach to management of vulvovaginitis is very limited. A significant number of women will not fit the “traditional” diagnosis of candidiasis, bacterial vaginosis, or trichomoniasis. These conditions are discussed, as well as desquamative inflammatory vaginitis, group B streptococcus (GBS) vaginitis, leptothrix, cytolytic vaginosis, lactobacillosis, vaginal atrophy and the newer entity of aerobic vaginitis.
