  • Group A Streptococcus vulvovaginitis in breastfeeding women AMERICAN JOURNAL OF OBSTETRICS AND GYNECOLOGY Rahangdale, L., Lacy, J., Hillard, P. A. 2008; 199 (2): E4-E5


    Group A beta-hemolytic streptococcus-associated vulvovaginitis is uncommon in adult women. Clinicians should include group A beta-hemolytic streptococcus as a possible cause of vulvovaginal symptoms in breastfeeding women. Along with appropriate antibiotic therapy, vaginal estrogen therapy may be considered to diminish susceptibility to recurrent infection in women with vaginal atrophy.
