Clue cells are cells from the lining of the vagina that are coated in bacteria. They may be found in a woman's vaginal fluid or discharge. They're called clue cells because the presence of bacteria on them can help doctors diagnose a vaginal infection, such as bacterial vaginosis. Clue cells are usually taken from the vagina using a swab. They are then viewed on a slide, under a microscope.
