Cytologic evidence of abnormal epithelium was found in a total of 50 out of 167 cases (29.94%). It is interesting to note that 9 (5.38%) patients(More)
This study was undertaken to assess the effect of CO2 laser vaporization, 5-fluorouracil 5% (5-FU) topical application and Interferon alpha-2a (IFA alpha-2a) in the treatment of C.A. or F.C. of the male genital tract. From March 1986 to September 1991, 1372 men, sexual partners of women with F.C. or C.A. or cervical intraepithelial neoplasia, were submitted(More)
Forty-six cases of fetal urinary malformations diagnosed by ultrasound are described.
