Chronic Cervicitis


Presentation

  • In this study we present 26 cases of chronic cervicitis managed with Nd-YAG laser with a success rate of 93%. We advice this method to block the development of cervical intraepithelial neoplasm.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • All the treated women in the present study exhibited preoperatively severe subjective symptoms for chronic cervicitis, and 32 out of 60 (53%) exhibited colposcopically atypical squamous epithelium.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract The present study comprised 50 patients of chronic cervicitis attending gynaecological clinic of Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER), Chandigarh.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • […] are present which may come from an early pre-malignant lesion) High Grade Squamous Intraepithelial Lesion(HGSIL) (Some squamous cells are present which may come from an advanced pre-malignant lesion) Malignant cells are present.[thepremenstrualproblem.wordpress.com]
Chinese Herbal Drugs
  • Astragalus membranaceus, a Chinese herbal drug, was shown to be synergic to interferon therapy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Suggestibility
  • It was suggested that these cells were exfoliated from either basal cell hyperactivity or atypical reserve cell hyperplasia. The second group consisted of cells with scanty cytoplasm of bare nuclei and occurred in aggregates.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Our results suggest that DLE can stimulate innate immunity of cervical mucosae, diminishing chronic cervicitis in HPV-infected patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Are there particular remedies you could suggest, perhaps to decrease inflammation in there? Thank you sincerely.[herpeslife.com]
  • Suggestions? Thanks for reading.[womens-health.com]
  • In cervical smears, follicular cervicitis is detected by areas with lymphoid cels of different sizes and, in rare zones, elements suggesting centro-follicular structures.[screening.iarc.fr]
Hyperactivity
  • It was suggested that these cells were exfoliated from either basal cell hyperactivity or atypical reserve cell hyperplasia. The second group consisted of cells with scanty cytoplasm of bare nuclei and occurred in aggregates.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Vaginal Discharge
  • Acute cervicitis is one of the symptoms of a chronic one and so is a very light vaginal discharge. Hurting during the urination or intercourse are also possible signs of a chronic one.[ic.steadyhealth.com]
  • It could cause light, almost unnoticeable vaginal discharge, discomfort and pain during urination, pain during intercourse, etc.[buzzle.com]
  • Other symptoms behave as the light and even inapparent vaginal discharge, accompanied with discomfort or painful urination as well as intercourse.[global.fuyanpills.com]
  • The most complaints were yellowish or bloody vaginal discharge, postcoital bleeding and spotting. The instrument utilized in this study was England Spenbry Co. TCC-10 and Tohitsu Co. 10-1 cryostat.[jstage.jst.go.jp]
  • In other women with signs and symptoms, the following may be seen: Swelling and redness of the cervix Ulceration Some women can have abnormal vaginal discharge Increased frequency of urination Itching in the genital area Pain during intercourse Pressure[dovemed.com]

Treatment

  • Initially, all 61 patients received one of 3 antibiotic treatments. The cure rate after initial antibiotic treatment was 65.6%. Nineteen patients required at least one further treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The HPV-16 and HSV detection rates dropped down significantly after rIFN-alpha 1 treatment as compared with those before treatment. Astragalus membranaceus, a Chinese herbal drug, was shown to be synergic to interferon therapy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The objective of the study was to assess the clinical, histopathological and immunochemical changes induced by dialyzable leukocyte extract (DLE) treatment in patients with chronic cervicitis associated to HPV infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The basic rule treatment of cervicitis: not to delay conservative treatment for many months and even years.[medicalency.com]
  • The indications are surgical treatment.[en.medicine-power.com]

Prognosis

  • Prognosis Mild chronic cervicitis usually responds to local therapy in 4-8 weeks; more severe chronic cervicitis may require 2-3 months of treatment.[generalhealthtopics.com]
  • The prognosis of Chronic Cervicitis with adequate treatment is generally good.[dovemed.com]
  • Presentation Symptoms vaginal discharge pelvic pain erythematous cervical os Physical exam pain on palpation friability when obtaining sample for culture Evaluation DNA probe detects Chlamydia and N. gonorrhoeae Wet mount detects T. vaginalis Pap smear Prognosis[medbullets.com]
  • Prognosis Cervicitis will go away within a few days to a week after you start taking antibiotics. If you have pelvic inflammatory disease, it may take a few weeks to treat the infection completely.[2minutemedicine.com]

Etiology

  • OBJECTIVES: Chronic nongonococcal nonchlamydial cervicitis is a condition of unknown etiology. Data about treatment options are limited. Our goal was to review a single center's experience in managing women with chronic NGNCC.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Non-infectious etiology: Allergies to condoms, vaginal douches, contraceptive creams (spermicides), etc.[dovemed.com]
  • Chronic cervical infection is the most common cause of leukorrhea and a major etiologic factor in infertility, dyspareunia, abortion, and intrapartum infection. Chronic cervicitis may even predispose to cervical cancer.[generalhealthtopics.com]
  • Treatment depends on the etiology of cervicitis. The injection of medicinal substances in the cervix produces only a doctor. The midwife, nurse perform the prescribed procedures: baths, tampons with antibiotics and other anti-inflammatory drugs.[medicalency.com]

Prevention

  • Chronic form of infection may necessitate tissue destruction to prevent the development of dysplasia and neoplasm. Various methods such as electrocautery, loop diathermy, cryotherapy or laser are used to destroy the inflamed area.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
