Detection of Chlamydia trachomatis from urine specimens by PCR in women with cervicitis
Clinical manifestations of STD, for example, Chlamydia range from Urethritis, Epididymitis, Orchitis, Infertility in men to Cervicitis
, Endometritis, Salpingitis, PID, infertility and Perihepatitis in women; and untreated STDs that display such manifestations are often fatal.
Other findings were mild chronic cervicitis
, secretory endometrium, myometrium with no specific lesion, and bilateral fallopian tubes with no specific lesion.
Treatment of cervicitis
is associated with decreased cervical shedding of HIV-1.
genitalium is a bacterial STD that causes inflammatory conditions of the genitals and reproductive tract (urethritis, cervicitis
and pelvic inflammatory disease).
The National Cancer Institute's 2008 Manual of Standards and Procedures for Cervical Cancer Prevention (15,16) mandates that all sexually active women aged 30-49 or women with at least one risk factor (including presence of HPV, sexual activity before age 18, multiple sexual partners, chronic cervicitis
, history of sexually transmitted infection (STI), tobacco use and low socio-economic level) should have a Pap smear every three years.
30%) women with normal histology results, cervicitis
or HPV only on the histology findings (Table 2).
Group 2: Cervicitis
with CIN 1: In women with cervicitis
and CIN 1, only 10% still had a bacterial and/ or fungal cervicitis
Gonorrhea typically presents as urethritis in men and cervicitis
in women but when left untreated can result in severe sequelae, such as infertility (2,3).
genitalium differs sharply from that of gonorrhea and Chlamydia trachomatis--the other two pathogens most common in urethritis, cervicitis
, and pelvic inflammatory disease--clinicians increasingly confront infections unresponsive to or persistent despite a course of doxycycline or azithromycin (Zithromax).
At the local clinic, the original histopathologic diagnosis was of leiomyoma, adenomyosis uteri, chronic cervicitis
and atypical glandular hyperplasia of endocervical glands.
Of the 301 cases of vaginitis, only 7 cases (4 cervicitis
and 3 PID) had upper RTI, which required treatment of gonorrhoea and Chlamydia trachomatis.
