G Zertuche Zuani

The study by Pap smear and colposcopy clear field (CCC), has not high sensitive and specific; colposcopy by actinic light (CLA), may be a valid strategy. Objective. Determine the validity of CLA detecting cervical lesions by HPV. Patients and methods. Women over 18 over old, sexually active without cervix cancer (CC). Diagnoses with biopsy, Where performed in all patients independently and blinded to Pap smear result, CCC and CCA. It was considered positive when fluorescence visualization CLA. Stats. Determine sensitivity, specificity, likelihood ratios, positive and negative (+RV and –RV), as predictive values. We analyzed the concordance between CLA and Pap with CLA. Results.
