  • CONCLUSIONS: Desquamative inflammatory vaginitis seems to be a distinct entity of vaginitis that, in an office setting, can be distinguished from other diagnostic possibilities by careful clinical evaluation and focused trials of treatment. The majority of women responded promptly to intravaginal antibiotics, with approximately 35% of cases requiring maintenance therapy. More than half the cases have an historical trigger. We postulate that DIV occurs when a trigger causes shifts in vaginal homeostasis, resulting in an inflammatory response associated with increased epithelial cell turnover.
