A Prospective Study of Vaginal Bacterial Flora and Other Risk Factors for Vulvovaginal Candidiasis.

R. Scott McClelland, Barbra A. Richardson3 Wisal M. Hassan, Susan M. Graham, James Kiarie, Jared M. Baeten, Kishorchandra Mandaliya, Walter Jaoko, Jeckoniah O. Ndinya-Achola, and King K. Holmes.


The purpose of this study objective was to determine the relationship between vaginal bacterial flora and vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC). It has been suggested that normal vaginal flora consisting predominantly of Lactobacillus species may protect against the development of VVC, but there is limited evidence to support this hypothesis. Vulvovaginal candidiasis affects up to seventy five percent of reproductive age women at least once, and nearly half of those women will experience at least one recurrence with five to eight percent having multiple episodes each year. In addition to the discomfort and costs associated with medication and health care visits, several studies have suggested that VVC may increase a woman's risk of becoming infected with HIV-1. Because of the high prevalence of vulvovaginal candidiasis, it could contribute substantially to the population-level risk of HIV-1.


This study was a prospective cohort analysis, conducted jointly by researchers at the University of Washington and the Kenyatta National Hospital in Kenya. Study participants were one hundred and fifty one Kenyan sex workers attending a municipal clinic in Mombasa. All participants were HIV-1-seronegative, were not pregnant and did not currently have symptoms of vulvovaginal pruritis or abnormal vaginal discharge at enrollment. At baseline and at monthly follow-up visits: a genital/pelvic examination was performed; specimens were collected for laboratory diagnosis of genital tract infections, pregnancy and HIV-1 serological status; the women were interviewed regarding recent sexual behavior and genital symptoms; all medication use was recorded; and risk reduction counseling was provided. During follow-up the women received treatment for any sexually transmitted infection, vulvovaginal pruritis or abnormal vaginal discharge that was identified. Participants in the trial were asked to return for a total of twelve monthly follow-up visits. Participation was discontinued if they became pregnant or HIV-1 positive.


Overall, the women accrued 153 person-years of follow-up over 1,570 visits, representing ninety percent of expected follow-up visits. Vulvovaginal candidiasis was identified at 162 follow-up visits in a total of 71 women. Symptomatic VVC was identified at 26 follow-up visits, affecting 16 women. In laboratory analysis bacterial vaginosis was associated with fewer episodes of VVC, however prior incidence of VVC and concurrent Lactobacillus colonization were both significantly associated with symptomatic VVC.


This study provides strong evidence contradicting the hypothesis that vaginal colonization with Lactobacillus reduces the risk of vulvovaginal candidiasis. Indeed, the opposite may be true. Although bacterial vaginosis was associated with a substantial reduction in the risk of vulvovaginal candidiasis, Lactobacillus colonization, on the other hand, was associated with as much as a 4-fold increased likelihood of symptomatic vulvovaginal candidiasis.
