    Page 143 of FA14 says "Treatment [for gardnerella bacterial vaginosis]: metronidazole or (to treat anaerobic bacteria) clindamycin."

    What are they getting at when they refer to clinda as "to treat anaerobic bacteria"? Metronidazole is for anaerobes too last time I checked.

    It seems like nonsense to me, they certainly are both for anaerobic infections.

    Looks like redundant redundancy. Both metronidazole and clindamycin are used for anaerobic bacteria and Gardnerella is anaerobic.

    You should submit the error or ask for clarification.
