A markedly increased risk of cervical cancer is known in women immunosuppressed due to AIDS or therapy following organ transplantation. The aim of this review is to determine the association between other conditions affecting the immune system and the risk of cervical cancer. Patients with end-stage renal disease seem to be at an increased risk of cervical cancer. A higher risk of cervical precancerous lesions was found in patients with some autoimmune diseases; particularly if treated with… 
Risk of cervical cancer in women with autoimmune diseases, in relation with their use of immunosuppressants and screening: Population‐based cohort study
TLDR
Although most patients with AIDs do not have an increased risk of cervical cancer, those taking substantial amounts of azathioprine might need more stringent cervical screening measures.
Human Papillomavirus.
TLDR
Screening guidelines have been developed or advocated for processes that have detectable premalignant lesions, such as anal cancer or cervical cancer, and diagnosis relies on cytologic, histologic, or molecular methods.
Advancements in Cervical Cancer Prevention and Management of Persistent, Recurrent, and Metastatic Disease: 2016 Update
TLDR
Current and emerging therapies in locally advanced, recurrent, and metastatic cervical cancer and their role in clinical practice are reviewed, including bevacizumab to combination chemotherapy showed a 3.7-month advantage in OS in 2014.
Chlamydia trachomatis and risk of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 3 or worse in women with persistent human papillomavirus infection: a cohort study
TLDR
Repeated CT infections increased the risk of CIN3+ among women with prevalent as well as persistent high-risk HPV infection.
Combined Effect of Secondhand Smoking and Alcohol Drinking on Risk of Persistent Human Papillomavirus Infection
TLDR
It is suggested that women exposed to secondhand smoking at home or in the workplace might be at high risk of HR-HPV persistence when it is combined with alcohol drinking, even though neither active smoking nor second hand smoking independently affects the risk.
HIV-positive women have higher risk of human papilloma virus infection, precancerous lesions, and cervical cancer
TLDR
HIV-positive women have higher risk of acquiring HPV, with risk inversely associated with CD4+ cell count, and ART lowered HPV acquisition, increased clearance, and reduced precancer progression, likely via immune reconstitution.
Eliminating Cervical Cancer in Mali and Senegal, Two Sub-Saharan Countries: Insights and Optimizing Solutions
TLDR
It is proposed that screening by visual inspection with acetic acid accompanied by self-sampling is the most cost-effective, culturally acceptable and most feasible strategy to implement in primary care settings and HPV DNA testing would be affordable, if local laboratory facilities could be established.
Immunosuppression and Multiple Primary Malignancies in Kidney-Transplanted Patients: A Single-Institute Study
TLDR
Data so far are not robust enough to justify a correlation between immunodeficiency and multiple primary malignancies in transplanted patients, as they are at higher risk of developing cancer due to the chronic assumption of immunosuppression.
Risks of female genital tract related cancers (gynecological cancers) or breast cancer in women with and without chronic kidney disease
TLDR
The hypothesis that the risk of female genital tract related cancer (gynecological cancer: GC) or breast cancer (BC) of women with chronic kidney disease (CKD) might be different from that of those women without CKD is tested.
Considerations for Child Cancer Survivors and Immunocompromised Children to Prevent Secondary HPV-associated Cancers.
TLDR
The epidemiology of vaccine efficacy, the natural history of HPV infections, and accelerated HPV-associated cancer development in populations at high risk for the development of secondary Human Papillomavirus (HPV)-associated cancers are examined.

TLDR
The objective of this review is to summarize the last ten years of registry-based and clinical research into the impact of HAART on human papillomavirus (HPV) related cervical disease and to better understanding this subject will have an impact on cervical disease surveillance practices.

TLDR
Evidence is provided that even though not presenting the classic risk factors for CC, SLE patients, especially those exposed to long-term immunosuppression, have increased chances of presenting more premalignant lesions than the general population and they probably need to follow a more stringent CC prevention program.
Chapter 6: Immunosuppression and co-infection with HIV.
TLDR
This chapter will address questions about the biology of HPV infection among immunocompromised HIV-negative individuals, the impact of highly active antiretroviral therapy on the natural history of anogenital dysplasia and cancer among those who are HIV-positive, and whether the Biology of specific HPV types is the same in HIV- positive as in HIV -negative individuals.
The Epidemiology of Human Papillomavirus Infection and Cervical Cancer
TLDR
Women exposed to the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) are at high risk for HPV infection, HPV DNA persistency and progression of HPV lesions to cervical cancer.
Nutrition and cervical neoplasia
TLDR
Findings from previous studies suggest a role for nutritional factors in some or all stages of cervical neoplasia, andLimitations and recommendations for future research directions are discussed in light of methodologic issues related to nutritional and HPV research.
Does chlamydial infection increase the risk of cervical dysplasia?
TLDR
An interesting and suggestive study of the relationship between chlamydial infection and CIN based on a retrospective cohort analysis of the placebo arms of the FUTURE (Females United to Unilaterally Reduce Endo/ Ectocervical Disease) trials.
Risk of human papillomavirus-associated cancers among persons with AIDS.
TLDR
Risk of HPV-associated cancers was elevated among persons with AIDS and increased with increasing immunosuppression and the increasing incidence for anal cancer during 1996-2004 indicates that prolonged survival may be associated with increased risk of certain HPV- associated cancers.
Increased prevalence of squamous intraepithelial lesions in systemic lupus erythematosus: association with human papillomavirus infection.
TLDR
Abnormal Pap smears were more common among SLE patients than controls, even after adjusting for HPV status, and SLE-associated immunosuppression increases susceptibility to high-risk HPV infection and multiple HPV infections.
Cervical human papillomavirus infection in Mexican women with systemic lupus erythematosus or rheumatoid arthritis
TLDR
There is a high prevalence of cervical HPV infection in Mexican women with SLE or RA, and physicians must be vigilant in preventing the development of cervical dysplasia.
What types of cancers are associated with immune suppression in HIV? Lessons from solid organ transplant recipients
TLDR
The similarity of the increased risk of cancer in these two immunosuppressed populations, who differ with respect to their underlying conditions and lifestyles, is compelling evidence that these cancers are associated with immune deficiency.
