Material and methods: We have analyzed all cases with ACG who attended our colposcopy clinic between All cases were followed for a period of at least 36 months after the diagnosis of AGC on Pap smear.
Medical records were reviewed to determine the clinical data, colposcopy findings and histology results.
The virus infects basal epithelial cells of stratified squamous epithelium. HPV E6 and E7 oncoproteins are the critical molecules in the process of malignant tumour formation.
Normal colposcopy, minor colposcopy changes, major colposcopy changes and suspicion of invasion were encountered in 44 cases The colposcopy hpv virus in pap smear not satisfactory transformation zone type III in 13 cases Conclusions: The ACG diagnosis needs new strategies in order to reduce the overtreatment but not to increase the false negative results.
Colposcopy is useful in cases with associated squamous cervical lesions, but new diagnostic tools are mandatory for a better hpv virus in pap smear.
A possible one is represented by Human Papilloma Virus test, but the place of this test should be clarified by further studies. Author Biographies D.
Cervical cytology reported as negative and risk of adeno-carcinoma of the cervix: no strong evidence of benefit.
According to some recent studies, the HPV infection may also increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Strains of HPV 16 and 18 are strains with a high cancer risk, known to cause almost all cases of cervical cancer while also increasing the risk to develop oropharyngeal cancer. Structura HPV women.
