Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia in a Cohort of HIV-positive Women at the University Hospital of the West Indies: Management and Outcome

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.223
Pages: 
313–7
Synopsis: 
This article identifies the risk of recurrence of cervical dysplasia in HIV-positive women. Results indicate that HIV increases the risk of recurrence but once women who are HIV positive maintain their antiretroviral agents and have good CD4 counts then their risk would be similar to that of HIV-negative women.

ABSTRACT


Objective: To determine the rate of recurrence of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) in HIVpositive women evaluated at the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI).
