A common clinical dilemma: Management of abnormal vaginal cytology and human papillomavirus test results.
The researchers reviewed the literature on vaginal cytology and high-risk HPV testing and developed guidance for the management of abnormal vaginal screening tests. Since vaginal cancer is rare, the authors suggested that asymptomatic low-risk women not be screened. They further proposed an algorithm based on expert opinion for managing women with abnormal vaginal test results.
