Diagnostic Considerations

Other causes of vaginal discharge include the following:

  • Physiologic leukorrhea
  • Vaginitis
  • Vaginal foreign body
  • Cervical ectropion
  • Bacterial vaginosis

Consider associated pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), [13] perihepatitis, or both.

Consider sexual abuse if gonococcal or chlamydial cervicitis is detected in the prepubertal child.
