HPV infection is currently one of the most prevalent sexually transmitted disease in the world. In Brazil, according to data from the Ministry of Health, it corresponds to 23.4% of these STD. Considered a pre-neoplastic condition, it has been a focus of attention in health policies because most patients are asymptomatic carriers. HPV detection can be performed by anuscopy associated with anal colposcopy or by evaluating the material obtained from the anal brush by the hybrid capture method.

CONCLUSION: TA is as acceptable and safe as cryotherapy in screen and treat setting. TA has the logistic advantages for the low-resourced settings as the machines are more portable, do not require costly refrigerant gas and battery-driven models are available. The cure rates for CIN 1+ lesions in our study were comparable between cryotherapy and TA. PMID: 32458647 [PubMed - in process]

Telemedicine and telehealth (TM/TH) are the 2 terms used interchangeably focusing on the delivery of health care services at a long distance using telecommunication technology. TM/TH has several gynecologic applications, including the well-woman visits, preventive care, preconception counseling, family planning including contraception and medical abortion, infertility workup, teleradiology, cervical cancer screening and colposcopy, mental health, and telesurgery. The goals of TM/TH are not only improving quality of health care in patients and building a virtual community of physicians but also increasing convenience, effic...

Authors: Kovachev SM Abstract Objective: To establish the clearance of cervical human papillomavirus (HPV) infection following postoperative immunotherapy with inosine pranobex in women receiving surgical treatment of established high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (HSIL) of the uterine cervix.Materials and methods: Over the six-year study period, 32 women with cervical HPV infection following electroconization (loop electrosurgical excision procedure) of the uterine cervix for established HSIL were randomly divided into two groups: I (n = 10) without and II (n = 22) with postoper...

We present the case of a 54 years old postmenopausal patient with a history of vaginal cuff wart and HPV persistence that we managed in our clinic for 6 months with a mix of curcumin, aloe vera, amla and other natural ingredients. As the patient was found to be intolerant to imiquimod (one of the most common conservative methods of treatment) we attempted the use of curcumin, which was applied to the area of the wart three times per week for 6 months. Both clinical and colposcopical improvement was noted in regular clinic visits with regression of the lesion. The outcome of this case encourages our view that curcumin shoul...

Chlamydia trachomatis and human papillomavirus (HPV) are the most common pathogens of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), which can increase the risk of cervical cancer and infertility. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the prevalence, genotype and risk factors of C. trachomatis and/or HPV infection in women attending the annual physical examination, assistant reproductive treatment and visiting the gynecology clinics from Southern Hunan province in China. Cervical-swab samples were collected from 5006 participants. We found that the overall prevalence of C. trachomatis, HPV infection and C. trachomatis/HPV coi...

CONCLUSION: This study involves the largest series in the world summarizing a real-world experience with primary HPV DNA screening and triage with a single visit. The results show the feasibility and applicability of such screening method in developing countries with acceptable colposcopy referral rates. Among triage tests, only pap-smear seems to be effective without a need for extended genotyping. PMID: 32362567 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
