Abstract

One hundred and twenty-seven pediatric and adolescent patients suffering from vulvo-vaginitis underwent clinical and instrumental tests. The results of bacterioscopic and cultural test were negative in 39 (31.7%) patients due to the probable intervention of local hormonal, allergic and/or irritative factors. The tests used by the authors revealed phlogosis in 88 patients (68.3%) which was aspecific in 58 cases (65.9%) and specific in 30 (34.1%). While aspecific phlogosis were basically caused by germs of intestinal origin, typical of childhood and the prepuberal period, mycetes, gardnerella vaginalis, protozoa and chlamydia trachomatis were identified as the causes, in order of importance, of specific phlogosis, the exclusive hallmarks of adolescence.
