Simple, rapid, inexpensive methods such as pH determination, wet mount, KOH mount, amine test, Gram staining of vaginal discharge were undertaken prior to Pap stained smears of 158 patients of leucorrhoea. We were able to detect non-specific vaginitis (44.30%), Trichomoniasis (16.45%), Candida vaginitis (9.49%), gonococcal vaginitis (0.63%) and senile vaginitis (12 cases). No specific pathology was shown in 26 cases. 1.69% of the cases were of cervical erosion and 3.79% cases suggestive of squamous malignancy.
