Answer

Inpatient therapy is usually not required but may be indicated when resistance is present and intravenous (IV) therapy is indicated. For patients in whom treatment fails and in whom reinfection is ruled out, consultation with experts from the CDC may be advisable (770-488-4115). Consultation with an infectious diseases specialist, a gynecologist, or both may be helpful.
