Evaluation of gynecological complaints of women having inflammatory changes in their cervicovaginal smears

Öz:
Purpose: Inflammatory Pap-test is reported commonly,however, there is no consensus on its clinical significance.This study was to investigate the presence of gynecologicalcomplaints such as vaginal discharge, pruritus, burning,odor, and pelvic/abdominal pain in women who arehaving inflammatory changes in their cervicovaginalsmears.Materials and Methods: The cervicovaginal smears of854 women, between the ages of 18 and 76 (38.7 ± 11.18)years, were evaluated. Papanicolaou staining was used forcytological evaluation. For the diagnosis of inflammation,polymorphonuclear leucocytes (PMNLs) were counted inat least five visual fields (×100). PMNLs counts “above40” were recorded as inflammation positive.Results: Inflammation was detected in 115 of the 854(13.5%) patients; these were considered the study group.Cytological specimens with various types of infections andepithelial cell abnormalities were excluded from the cohort(n = 221, 25.8%). Patients without any infection (n = 518,60.7%) were accepted as the control group. In the studygroup, gynecological complaints including vaginaldischarge, pruritus, burning, odor, and abdominal painwere found at rates of 56.5%, 6.1%, 3.5%, 4.3%, and 7.8%,respectively. The presence of vaginal discharge wasstatistically significant in women with inflammation(56.5%) compared to the control group (25.9%).Conclusion: Vaginal discharge is significantly morefrequent in women with inflammatory changes in theircervicovaginal smears

Servikovajinal smearlarında inflamatuar değişiklikler bulunan kadınların jinekolojik şikayetlerinin değerlendirilmesi

Öz:
Amaç: İnflamasyon Pap-testinde yaygın olarak rapor edilmektedir, ancak klinik önemi konusunda bir fikir birliği yoktur. Servikovajinal simirlerde inflamatuar değişiklikler olan kadınlarda vajinal akıntı, kaşıntı, yanma, koku, pelvik/karın ağrısı gibi jinekolojik şikayetlerin varlığını araştırılması amaçlanmıştır. Gereç ve Yöntem: 18-76 (38.7 ± 11.18) yaşları arasındaki 854 kadının servikovajinal simirleri değerlendirildi. Papanicolaou boyama yöntemi sitolojik değerlendirme için kullanıldı. İnflamsyon teşhisi için, polimorfonükleer lökositler (PMNL'ler) en az beş görsel alanda (×100) sayıldı. "40'ın üzerindeki" PMNL sayıları, inflamasyon pozitif olarak kaydedildi. Bulgular: 854 hastanın 115'inde (%13.5) inflamasyon tespit edildi; bunlar çalışma grubu olarak kabul edildi. Çeşitli enfeksiyon türleri ve epitel hücre anormallikleri olan sitolojik örnekler kohorttan çıkarıldı (n = 221, %25,8). Herhangi bir enfeksiyonu olmayan hastalar ise (n = 518, %60,7) kontrol grubu olarak kabul edildi. Çalışma grubunda vajinal akıntı, kaşıntı, yanma, koku ve karın ağrısı gibi jinekolojik şikayetler sırasıyla %56,5, %6,1, %3,5, %4,3 ve %7,8 oranında bulundu. İnflamasyonlu kadınlarda vajinal akıntı varlığı (%56.5) kontrol grubuna (%25.9) göre istatistiksel olarak anlamlıydı. Sonuç: Vajinal akıntı, servikovajinal smearlarında inflamatuvar değişiklikler olan kadınlarda anlamlı olarak daha sıktır.
