Gardnerella vaginalis: Still a prime suspect in the pathogenesis of bacterial vaginosis

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is the most common cause of vaginal infection, yet its pathogenesis remains controversial. Although it has never been proven to be a sexually transmitted diseases the epidemiological evidence favoring this is quite robust. Although BV is characterized by its polymicrobial nature, it is highly likely that the inciting organism is Gardnerella vaginalis. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media New York.
