The frequency of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia in women with the virus of adquired imunodeficiency human syndrome. Rev. Para. Med. [online]. 2006, vol.20, n.2, pp. 35-39. ISSN 0101-5907.
OBJECTIVE: study the frequency of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia in women with the virus of adquired imunodeficiency human syndrome. METHOD: thirty-six women infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and fifty-four uninfected were studied to evaluate the frequency by cervical squamous intraepithelial lesions (SILs), the precursors of invasive cervical cancer. All pacient were interviewed and had a gynecologic examination including Papanicolaou (Pap) test and colposcopy. Biopsies were done on colposcopy abnormalities. The CD4 cell levels were assessed in HIV infected women and we asked about use of antiretroviral therapy on incidence of SILs, and almost all them used the drugs. RESULTS: the results showed that the frequency of SILs was similar in the two groups (33.3% x 27.7%). The most of infected women had CD4 levels over than 200 cells/mm3. They were considered immunocompetent. And thirty-three women from thirty-six used antiretroviral therapy. CONCLUSION: the women infected with human immunodeficiency virus, using antiretroviral therapy, with immunocompetent status, had the same frequency of SILs observed on uninfected women.
