Abstract

Infections in the neonate caused by the vaginal commensal Gardnerella vaginalis are rare and mostly consist of bacteremia. A 4130-g term neonate developed an infection of a scalp hematoma with G. vaginalis. The infection developed in association with electronic fetal monitoring. The only clinical sign was an increase in size of the hematoma.
