ABSTRACTIntroduction: the hypothesis on the possibility that papilloma virus had to do with cervix cancer was first raised in 1975. Today we know that this virus is also responsible for malignancies throughout the lower genital tract.
Objective: characterize the behavior of epithelial lesions of the lower genital tract infections associated with human papilloma virus in the Isle of Youth from 2010 to 2013.
Method: aretrospective study was performed according to variables of interest, 412 patients shaped our sample.
Results: third of the cases occurred in patients aged 40-49 years, 69% of patients had a lesion confined to the cervix, 64% underwent their last Pap smear three years before diagnosis. 74% had low-grade lesions and 58% reported having only one sexual partner in the last 10 years. 41% of cases recognized vaginal discharge as the most common symptom, and colposcopy was the average final diagnostic procedure in 26% of cases.
Conclusions: the largest number of cases occurred during the fifth decade of life. Low-grade cervical lesions, cytology in three years before diagnosis and referred monogamy were predominant findings in our study. Vaginal discharge was the most common symptom and colposcopy as a diagnostic procedure contributed significantly to positive diagnosis.
