Abstract

© 2014 by Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society.Microbiological examination and potential pathogens of vaginal samples are substantially different in the prepubertal, reproductive, lactation, and menopausal periods. Because vaginal samples are mostly from women during the reproductive age and frequently examined as though all patients are in the same age group, improper evaluations and consequent false reports or misdiagnoses mightoccur. To draw attention to such a mistake in the evaluation of vaginal samples, here we describe a 5-year-old patient with Group A Streptococcal vaginitis.
