Abstract

HPV infection of the low genital tract is the most diffuse STD world wide. For this reason it's necessary to follow a simple flow chart to reach a correct diagnosis and to practice an adequate therapy. The authors relate on their experience in the management of a group of patients they have observed in a STD clinic. In this group it was executed a diagnostic protocol including Pap test, in situ hybridization, dot blot and histologic examination on tissue biopsies. From the analysis of the obtained data, the authors state that the Pap test is very useful to start in the diagnostic protocol, for it is precise, inexpensive and allows to identify the patients to follow with further diagnostic procedures such as colposcopy and histologic examination, in order to reach an exhaustive diagnosis and to assess the proper therapy.
