Vaginitis is one of the most common infectious problems affecting women today. Trichomoniasis, candidiasis, and bacterial vaginosis account for the vast majority of vaginitis cases. The most common presenting complaints are malodorous vaginal discharge, pruritus, vaginal irritation, burning, dysuria, and dyspareunia. Frequently, the cause is easily identified and effectively treated; however, some women may be plagued with persistent and recurrent symptoms despite repeated treatment.
