ABSTRACT: Ninety cases of women with vaginal discharge attending the Out-Patients Department (OPD) of Central Women's Hospital (CWH), Yangon were subjected for the isolation of pathogens during March and April, 1999. These subjects comprised of 39 cases with vaginitis and/or cervicitis; 41 cases with Pelvic Inflammatory Diseases (MD) and 10 cases with other infections. Their ages ranged from 19 to 78 years. They were from various sectors of Yangon (72 cases) and from its outskirts (8 cases). Pathogens were isolated from 28.21% of the cases with vaginitis and/or cervicitis; 24.39% with PM and 20% of the cases with other infections. Neisseria gonorrhoea was isolated from two cases (2.22%), one with Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (MD) and another with vaginosis. These strains were sensitive to cefaclor and amikacin. Staphylococcus aureus was isolated from three cases (3.33%) and these strains were sensitive to augmentin, carbenicillin, cephalothin and vancomycin; Candidu albicans isolated from eight cases (8.88%); Triehomonas vaginalis isolated from three cases (3.33%), Chlatnydia antigen was detected from 17.95% of the cases by Clear View kits. Clue cells were detected from 25 cases (27.50%), Bacterial vaginosis was found to be the commonest organism and then followed by Chlamydiu.
