Objective: The present study was undertaken to assess the prevalence of bacterial vaginosis (BV) and to estimate the prevalence of anaerobic organism in vaginal discharge of woman suffering from bacterial vaginosis. Materials and Methods: High vaginal swabs taken from 112 female patients complaining of abnormal vaginal discharge. BV was diagnosed by clinical composite criteria and by Gram's staining. Anaerobes were isolated and identified from the discharge. Results: Out of 112 cases, 77

Anaerobic culture isolation of vaginal swab revealed that out of 112 cases 18 (16.07%) samples did not yields anaerobic growth, 94 cases (83.92%) were culture positive for anaerobes. Bacteroides were significantly raised in BV as compared with NBV (Non-bacterial vaginosis). Conclusion: Anaerobic bacteria are important pathogens in the causation of bacterial vaginosis along with other aerobic organisms. Bacteroides and peptostreptococci are significantly raised in BV.
