Döderlein('s) flora
Explanation:
The vaginal flora of healthy women is mostly composed of rod-shaped bacteria of the Lactobacillus
acidophilus type producing lactic acid (so-called Döderlein flora).

Als Döderlein-Bakterien oder Döderlein-Stäbchen bezeichnet man jene Milchsäurebakterien, die normalerweise die Scheide der Frau im gebärfähigen Alter besiedeln. Sie sind nach dem deutschen Frauenarzt Albert Döderlein (1860–1941) benannt.
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Döderlein-Bakterien

Die 10mal höhere Infektionsrate bei Frauen mit Aminkolpitis und Episiotomie gegenüber Frauen mit **Döderleinflora** und Episiotomie zeigt, daß es sich bei der Aminkolpitis nicht nur um ein ästhetisches Problem handelt.

Since the rate of infection in women with Gardnerella vaginalis vaginitis and episiotomy was found to be ten times higher than that in women with **Döderlein's flora** and episiotomy, it is obvious that Gardnerella vaginalis vaginitis is not just an aesthetic problem.

agree  SJLD: sorry, I didn't see your answer when I posted - Döderlein's bacilli or lactobacilli would be more usual - they are the predominent constituent of normal vaginal flora

Reference: named after Dr. Albert Doederlein (or also spelled Doderlein)

Reference information:
http://www.ispub.com/ostia/index.php?xmlFilePath=journals/ij...


In 1892, Doderlein first identified the presence or absence of gram-positive rods in normal vaginal flora (16). He named these organisms Doderlein's bacilli. The health of the vagina was dependent on the number of Doderlein's bacilli. The vaginal ailment was referred to as Doderlein's Cytolysis, and symptoms were similar to candidiasis (16).

Many early studies confirmed that the vagina is rich in glycogen, with some strains of Lactobacillus capable of directly fermenting glycogen, and increasing the vaginal acidity (17,18). Gardner and Dukes (19) defined a new entity that they felt accounted for almost all cases of what was then called nonspecific vaginitis. The single facultative organism isolated was named Hemophilus vaginalis. Until 1980 the term Hemophilus was popular until Greenwood and Pickett summarized all the bacteriologic evidence and showed that it belonged to neither genus but in fact represented a new genus not previously described (20). In honor of its principle discoverer Herman L. Gardner, they officially titled the organism Gardnerella vaginalis.
