Abnormal vaginal discharge is common among the females of the reproductive age group. Vulvovaginitis caused by azole-resistant Candida albicans is rare. Recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis (RVVC) causes significant patient distress and morbidity. The vaginal microflora is a complex micro-ecological environment comprising different microbiological species in variable quantities and relative proportions. Any disturbance in the aforesaid causes vaginitis, for instance, aerobic vaginitis (AV) results from the displacement of healthy vaginal Lactobacillus species with aerobic pathogens. We report AV with RVVC caused by C. albicans resistant to even second generation azoles which has not been previously reported to the best of our knowledge.
