OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to assess clinical and histopathologic characteristics of symptomatic women who underwent a nondiagnostic biopsy of the inner vulva. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Consecutive nondiagnostic biopsies from medial labia minora, posterior fourchette, and vestibule obtained from symptomatic women between 2011 and 2015 were reviewed for this retrospective histopathologic case series. Histopathologic assessment included site, basal layer appearance, lymphocytic infiltrate, and presence of fibrosis or sclerosis...

OBJECTIVE: Lichen sclerosus (LS) is a disease affecting mostly genital and perianal areas. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) has gained interest during the past years. The present study accumulates current evidence on the efficacy of PDT in the management of vulvar LS. METHODS: We used Medline (1966-2017), Scopus (2004-2017), ClinicalTrials.gov (2008-2017) and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials CENTRAL (1999-2017) databases in our primary search along with the reference lists of electronically retrieved full-text papers...

OBJECTIVES: Localized provoked vulvodynia (LPV) afflicts approximately 8% of women in the United States and represents a huge financial, physical, and psychological burden. Women with LPV experience intense pain localized to the vulvar vestibule (area immediately surrounding vaginal opening). We have identified mechanisms involved in the development of LPV whereby vulvar fibroblasts respond to proinflammatory stimuli to perpetuate an inflammatory response that causes pain. However, these mechanisms are not fully elucidated...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to evaluate the impact of maintenance on performance of cryosurgical equipment used in El Salvador primary health clinics. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Nine gynecological cryotherapy devices used in El Salvador were bench tested against a new machine of the same make and model. The devices were run for five successive double-freeze cycles. The El Salvador machines then received maintenance by a specialized engineer and another double-freeze cycle was performed...

OBJECTIVE: Cervical excision procedures are essential to the care of cervical dysplasia and malignancy. We sought to determine whether learner involvement in cervical excision procedures affects the quality of excision specimen. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective cohort study of cervical cancer patients diagnosed from July 1, 2000, to July 1, 2015, was performed. We included patients who had (1) a cervical excision procedure, either loop electrosurgical excision procedure or cold knife cone, and (2) pathologic information available...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to compare the effectiveness of pain control between lidocaine spray (LS) and paracervical block (PB) with lidocaine during the loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A single-blinded randomized controlled trial was conducted on 132 women who underwent LEEP of the cervix. The participants were randomly allocated to either a PB group or a LS group. The PB group participants were anesthetized by PB using 10 mL of 2% lidocaine with 1:100,000 of epinephrine...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to identify the risk factors of post-large loop excision of the transformation zone (LLETZ) inadequate colposcopy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From December 2013 to July 2014, a total of 157 patients who had a LLETZ performed for the treatment of high-grade intraepithelial lesion with fully visible cervical squamocolumnar junction were included. All procedures were performed using semicircular loops. The use of colposcopy made during each procedure was systematically documented...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the involvement of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 3 (CIN3) in a population of women in a lower-resource setting. METHODS: One hundred twelve consecutive cone excision specimens with histological diagnosis of CIN3 were retrieved from the National Institute of Neoplastic Diseases in Lima Peru. Two pathologists independently evaluated each specimen microscopically and confirmed 107 cases that could be measured by optical micrometry...

The aim of the study was to evaluate the performance of the HPV-HR test to detect high-risk human papillomavirus (HPV) in urine samples in comparison with a commercial molecular HPV test. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is a prospective study, in which 350 patients diagnosed previously with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) grade 2 or higher were enrolled. Urine and cervical specimens were collected. Urine was tested with the HPV-HR test and cervical specimens were tested with the Cobas...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to determine the usefulness of human papillomavirus (HPV) partial genotyping test in the triage of newly diagnosed low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (LSILs). MATERIALS AND METHODS: We analyzed 143 patients with LSIL diagnosed de novo. Lesions were classified as positive for HPV 16 or HPV 18, positive for HPV but not HPV 16 or HPV 18 (HPVno16no18) or no HPV detected (HPVneg). Patients were followed for a period of 2 years or until the lesion progressed...

OBJECTIVES: The objectives of this study were to quantify personal stories about cervical cancer and to determine the proportion and sentiment (positive vs negative) of messages ("tweets") that discussed cervical cancer prevention strategies on Twitter. METHODS: This study was a cross-sectional Twitter review of English-language top tweets about cervical cancer during the Cervical Cancer Awareness month, January 2016. Theme categories were identified, and tweets were independently coded by 2 reviewers; discrepancies in coding were resolved by a third reviewer...

OBJECTIVE: To generate a list of items through international expert consensus consisting of both symptoms and clinical signs for inclusion in an adult vulvar lichen sclerosus severity scale. METHODS: This study was carried out as a three-stage Delphi consensus exercise. After an extensive literature review, any items used to determine disease severity in previous clinical trials were compiled into a survey. The Delphi participants were recruited from the International Society for the Study of Vulvovaginal Disease most of whom were gynecologists and in practice for more than 20 years...

The "unfortunate experiment" that took place for a period of more than 20 years at the New Zealand Woman's Hospital in Auckland, New Zealand, had tragic results for numerous unsuspecting women and ultimately caused a 20-year setback in cervical cancer screening in New Zealand. The story of Herbert Green's evolving beliefs about cervical cancer, his pursuit of proof for his unfounded theory, based on "no more that a whim and misbelief" according to author Ron Jones, as well as the history of the active as well as passive complicity of superiors and colleagues for years in the rarified realm of academic medicine, is recounted in this engrossing and well-documented book...

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to evaluate the incidence of anal dysplasia in women at high risk of developing those lesions and to assess the relationships between positive anal cytology and different risk factors. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed an observational cross-sectional study involving a patient survey and chart review.
