Trimethylaminuria: A Noninfectious Cause of Vaginal Odor

This is a 2006 paper involving Mitchell/Smith from the UK. Trimethylamine is regarded as causing the fishy smell of Bacterial Vaginosis, and in this paper they check the vaginal TMA levels of 2 TMAU sufferers with that of some women diagnosed as having bacterial vaginosis.

Two patients who were previously diagnosed with inherited (primary) fish-odor syndrome (trimethylaminuria) were examined for the presence of trimethylamine in their vaginal secretions. Their samples were compared with those obtained from a healthy control group and a cohort of patients with bacterial vaginosis (BV). As expected, those with BV secreted larger amounts of trimethylamine than the control group. However, the two patients with trimethylaminuria—although presenting with no vaginal/cervical pathology—secreted trimethylamine levels that were at least double those found in the patients with BV. This suggests that trimethylaminuria may be an underlying but unappreciated cause of vaginal malodor (especially fish-like odor) in patients found to be infection-free...
