BACKGROUND To evaluate the existence of the morphologic features specific for penile intraepithelial neoplasia (PIN), 1000 male sexual partners of women with genital condyloma or intraepithelial neoplasia were studied. METHODS Ninety-two patients who presented with lesions suggesting intraepithelial neoplasia (pigmented or leukoplastic papules,(More)
2466 women with cervical condylomatous lesions out of the general consulting (0.7%) have been followed by the authors. The cytological and histological criteria of these lesions and the detection of the viral antigen by immunoperoxidase (positive in only about 50% of the cases), are recalled. The flat condylomas are often associated with dysplasia (CIN I,(More)
To evaluate the reliability of colposcopy for distinguishing flat condyloma from cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN), 211 patients with abnormal cytology, colposcopical evidence of an atypical transformation zone (ATZ), and a histological diagnosis of flat condyloma or CIN were studied. Colposcopic evidence of surface abnormalities, the presence of(More)
This study includes 28 intraepithelial squamous lesions of the cervix associated with human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA sequences detected by the Southern blot technique. Objective analyses of the histologic features by morphometric parameters and mitotic index have demonstrated that lesions of HPV types 6 and 11 can be distinguished from types 16, 18, and 33(More)
OBJECTIVES To quantify the existence of human papillomavirus (HPV) infection without detectable lesions in the male urethra, and to verify the sensitivity and specificity of ureteral cytology. We compared the results of clinical and colposcopic examinations, ureteral cytology, and HPV DNA testing by polymerase chain reaction amplification in the male(More)
OBJECTIVE Our aim was to assess the frequency of herpetic genital infection (HSV) among men attending a human papillomavirus (HPV) screening centre. Clinical screening of a herpetic lesion was completed with biological detection of HSV by cell culture and by polymerase chain reaction (PCR). We also evaluated the role of the male viral factor on the female(More)
This study was based on 2,400 genital examinations performed by means of the acetic acid test looking for human papillomavirus (HPV) lesions in the male partners of women with HPV genital lesions. These peniscopies demonstrated HPV lesions in 56% of the men examined. In 109 cases, histological and virological examination revealed that 30% of them had areas(More)
