Bacterial vaginosis. An evaluation of treatment.
Scand J Urol Nephrol Suppl. 1984;86:229.
Various treatment regimens for bacterial vaginosis are reviewed. Orally administered metronidazole and tinidazole have been consistently successful, whereas widely variable results have been published from use of peroral ampicillin or tetracycline and from locally applied sulphonamide cream. The rationale for different treatments is discussed, with particular regard to the pathogenesis of the disease.
