    Etiology of Symptomatic Vaginitis among HIV/AIDS Patients in the Era of Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy
    Author(s): Padmajakshi G, Santosh Saini and Venkataramana Kandi*

    Background: HIV/AIDS is a widespread public health problem in India and rest of the World, causing severe morbidity and mortality. Occurrences of opportunistic infections (OI’s) in HIV/ AIDS correlate with their immune status. Infectious vaginitis is commonly caused by bacteria, fungi, and parasites. In general, the vaginal acidity limits the development of these infections, but the risk increases with a decrease in the immune status. Vaginitis is the most common and important OI in HIV seropositive women. The cause of concern is the recurrent and multiple episodes of vaginitis, and the emergence of drug resistance. In the general population, almost 70% of women experience at least one episode of vaginitis in their lifetime, making the condition even worse in HIV infected women resulting in recurrent and chronic infections.
