Background: This case involves a 28-year-old pregnant woman (39w+2) who was admitted to obstetrics due to abdominal tightness and bacteremia with Gardnerella vaginalis which developed after caesarean section and vaginal myomectomy.
Methods: A blood culture was performed, and the bacteria were identified through mass spectrometry.
Results: Mass spectrometry data indicated that the infection bacteria were Gardnerella vaginalis. The patient's temperature returned to normal after oral ampicillin in combination with clindamycin.
Conclusions: Gardnerella vaginalis bacteremia is very rare in clinical practice, and the combination of ampicillin and clindamycin has a good therapeutic effect. This study may provide a reference for the diagnosis and treatment of Gardnerella vaginalis bacteremia.
