The four most common infections causing vaginal discharge are bacterial vaginosis, aerobic vaginitis/desquamative inflammatory vaginitis, candidosis, and trichomoniasis. Management of vaginal discharge can be challenging as many of the symptoms and signs are non-specific. If not treated or treated inappropriately these conditions can lead to an assortment of complications. A key objective in the diagnosis of vaginitis is the appropriate diagnostics test.
