Reviewed is the role of mixed aerobic/anaerobic bacteria in causing obstetric/gynecologic infections. The consensus is that in patients with moderate to severe infections, aggressive antibiotic therapy is indicated. The regimen should include agents effective against resistant gram-negative anaerobic bacteria such as Bacteroides fragilis and B. bivius, gram-negative aerobic organisms such as E. coli, and the gram positive aerobes such as group B and other streptococci.
