Abstract

Aim: Mycotic vaginitis is an inflammation of the vagina which develops in a large number of women of reproductive age. It is of great importance that up to 90% of all women will develop at least once in their lifespan mycotic vaginitis, while a great number of women develop asymptomatic MV. Material and method: In the current study, 500 women aged 18 to 45 years old undertook a vaginal secretion microbiological examination/test. The microbiological examination / test was done either because of the existence of symptoms, or in the context of preventive control. Furthermore, the existence of various clinical symptoms was recorded (sense of itching or burning, excessive vaginal secretion, existence of pain, as well as the presence of rush or pain in genital area). Results: It was found that 38% of examined women had developed MV, while15% of them were asymptomatic. Moreover, 68% mentioned the existence of itching, 52% the existence of pain, 25% excessive secretion, while 40% were found with clinical rush. Conclusion: The high percentages of women who develop MV and especially the fairly high percentages of asymptomatic MV, constitute the laboratory control as one of the basic measures of prevention against MV.
