  1. A 23-year-old woman has her first Pap smear, thin prep smear interpreted as "high grade squamous intraepithelial lesion".

    Journal of Lower Genital Tract Disease 12(1):54 (2008) PMID 18162815

  2. Spectroscopic imaging as triage test for cervical disease.

  3. Significance of a diagnosis of microorganisms on pap smear.

    Journal of Lower Genital Tract Disease 12(1):40 (2008) PMID 18162813

    The Pap smear has been in use for more than half a century as the primary screening test for preinvasive and invasive lesions of the uterine cervix. Although not the primary use and an imperfect test, it can be extremely useful in the diagnosis of some microorganisms. This review focuses on the ...
  4. Benign ductal hyperplasia and adenosis of mammary-like glands of the vulva.

    Journal of Lower Genital Tract Disease 12(1):32 (2008) PMID 18162810

  5. Is this the end of the line for the moderate dyskaryotic smear?

    Journal of Lower Genital Tract Disease 12(1):20 (2008) PMID 18162808

    The British Society for Clinical Cytology has recently proposed that the terminology for cervical smear reporting is to be changed from a 3-tier system (mild, moderate, severe dyskaryosis) to a 2-tier system of low-grade and high-grade dyskaryosis. This modification eliminates the central catego...
  6. Home study course: winter 2008.

    Journal of Lower Genital Tract Disease 12(1):59 (2008) PMID 18162822

    The Home Study Course is intended for the practicing colposcopist or practitioner who is seeking to develop or enhance his/her colposcopic skills. The goal of the course is to present colposcopic cases that are unusual or instructive in terms of appearance, presentation, or management or that de...
  7. Risk assessment to guide the prevention of cervical cancer.

    Journal of Lower Genital Tract Disease 12(1):1 (2008) PMID 18162804

    Advances in screening and diagnosis make it increasingly possible to prevent cervical cancer. However, if misused or poorly understood, these new tools will only increase costs and potentially harm patients without benefit. As a framework for standardized care that maximizes patient safety and w...
  8. Caffeine-related genital skin pain.

    Journal of Lower Genital Tract Disease 12(1):38 (2008) PMID 18162812

    Genital hyperesthesia is more recognized in women but may affect men. We report both a female and a male patient in whom caffeine intake was associated with genital hyperesthesia.
  9. Should unsatisfactory colposcopy necessitate treatment of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia 1?

    Journal of Lower Genital Tract Disease 12(1):11 (2008) PMID 18162806

    To evaluate the prevalence of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) 2 or worse among women undergoing cone biopsy for CIN 1, stratified by colposcopic adequacy. A cross-sectional cohort study was performed using a colposcopic database of 3,004 women seen between August 1999 and December 2005....
  10. Overcoming the challenging cervix: techniques to access the uterine cavity.

    Journal of Lower Genital Tract Disease 12(1):24 (2008) PMID 18162809

    To identify cervical stenosis and review medical, surgical, and radiological modalities to access the uterine cavity. Computerized searches of Medline and PubMed from 1996 to 2005 were conducted using the key words "cervix," "cervical ripening," and "cervical stenosis." References from identifie...
  11. Why do human papillomavirus infections induce sharply demarcated lesions of the cervix?

    Journal of Lower Genital Tract Disease 12(1):8 (2008) PMID 18162805

    Chronic infections with high-risk human papilloma virus (HPV) have been established to cause cervical cancer. The causal pathogenesis of cervical carcinoma is believed to be the result of the proliferation of one or, at most, a few HPV-transformed cells. So far, it has not been possible to ident...
  12. Outcomes after diagnosis of vaginal intraepithelial neoplasia.

    Journal of Lower Genital Tract Disease 12(1):16 (2008) PMID 18162807

    To describe presenting characteristics and outcomes after a diagnosis of vaginal intraepithelial neoplasia (VAIN). Histologically confirmed cases of VAIN identified colposcopically after abnormal cytology were reviewed retrospectively. VAIN 1 was managed with observation, office loop excision, o...
  13. A rare mass formation of the vulva: giant cavernous hemangioma.

    Journal of Lower Genital Tract Disease 12(1):35 (2008) PMID 18162811

    Vulvar hemangioma is an extremely rare pathology in adult women causing sexual dysfunction, pain, and cosmetic problems requiring therapeutic intervention. We present a case of an isolated giant vulvar cavernous hemangioma with a 2-year history that macroscopically seemed to be a vulvar varicosi...
  14. Analysis of standard methods for diagnosing vaginitis: HIV infection does not complicate the diagnosis of vaginitis.

    Journal of Lower Genital Tract Disease 11(4):240 (2007) PMID 17917568

    We sought to determine whether the standard diagnostic methods for vaginitis behave similarly among HIV-infected and at-risk seronegative women. We performed pairwise comparisons over time (1994-2003) for the different diagnostic methods for bacterial vaginosis (BV) (Nugent score and Amsel crite...
  15. A review of women with microinvasive cervical cancer in the Grampian region.

    Journal of Lower Genital Tract Disease 11(4):290 (2007) PMID 17917578

    To review the diagnosis and treatment of women with microinvasive cervical cancer within a geographically defined population. A retrospective review of cervical cancer in the Grampian region identified 64 women diagnosed with microinvasive cervical cancer since 1991. All of the women were referr...
  16. Giant vulvar lymphangioma circumscriptum mimicking vulvar tumor: a case report and literature review.

    Journal of Lower Genital Tract Disease 11(4):281 (2007) PMID 17917576

    Lymphangioma circumscriptum (LC) is a benign dilation of lymph channels localized to the skin and subcutaneous tissues. Primary vulvar involvement is very rare, with only 34 cases reported. A 17-year-old girl presented with pain and an 18-cm mass of the right labium majus that started 4 years ea...
  17. Abnormal cervical smear in hereditary mucoepithelial dysplasia: a case report.

    Journal of Lower Genital Tract Disease 11(4):274 (2007) PMID 17917573

    Hereditary mucoepithelial dysplasia is a disorder that involves the mucosa, skin, hair, eyes, and lungs. It is an autosomal dominant condition, although sporadic cases have been reported. The syndrome is caused by an abnormality in desmosomes and gap junctions. We report a case of abnormal cervi...

  19. Isolated cervical metastasis of breast cancer: a case report and literature review.

    Journal of Lower Genital Tract Disease 11(4):276 (2007) PMID 17917574

    Metastasis of distant malignancies to the cervix is a rare event. Patients usually present with abnormal bleeding, pain, and dyspareunia. A smaller number of patients are asymptomatic, and their tumors can be diagnosed early by Pap smears. We present 56-year-old woman with a history of intraduct...
