Terms & Properties

Concept Unique Identifier (CUI): C0085166

NCI Thesaurus Code: C116973  (see NCI Thesaurus info)

Semantic Type: Disease or Syndrome

NCIt Definition: Infection caused by bacterial overgrowth in the vagina. Most affected women are asymptomatic. When symptoms occur, they include foul-smelling vaginal discharge, vaginal itching, and burning. Risk factors include sexual activity with multiple partners and the use of vaginal douches and intrauterine devices. Up to a third of cases resolve without treatment. Antibiotic treatment is recommended when symptoms are present and for women that are pregnant at the time of infection.

NICHD Definition: Bacterial overgrowth in the vagina that may be asymptomatic or that may cause foul-smelling vaginal discharge, vaginal itching, and burning.

MSH Definition: Polymicrobial, nonspecific vaginitis associated with positive cultures of Gardnerella vaginalis and other anaerobic organisms and a decrease in lactobacilli. It remains unclear whether the initial pathogenic event is caused by the growth of anaerobes or a primary decrease in lactobacilli.
