  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. Spectroscopic imaging as triage test for cervical disease.

    Journal of Lower Genital Tract Disease 12(1):52 (2008) PMID 18162814

  5. 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

  6. 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.
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  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....
