Between 270 patients complaining of symptoms of vaginitis, bacterial vaginosis was diagnosed in 68 women (%25) based on at least three of four criteria: 1. Homogenous vaginal discharge 2. Positive amine test 3. pH more than 4.5 4. Clue cell in wet smear. The results were compared to 55 normal controls.
Clue cell with more than %20 of epithelial cells was seen in %87 of cases and %5.5 of controls. A pH more than 4.5 showed the greatest sensitivity (%100) and the smallest specificity (%47). The most frequent complaints included increased discharge, bad odor, and sensing bad odor after coitus.
