Anal cytological abnormalities and epidemiological correlates among men who have sex with men at risk for HIV-1 infection. Background: The incidence of anal cancer, a Human Papillomavirus HPV -related neoplasia, has been increasing in recent decades, mainly in men who have sex with men MSM. Cytological changes of the anal epithelium induced by HPV can be detected through an anal pap smear.

Anal cytology, histopathology and anoscopy in an anal dysplasia screening program: is anal cytology enough? Porto Medical School. Porto, Portugal.
The incidence of anal cancer, a Human Papillomavirus HPV -related neoplasia, has been increasing in recent decades, mainly in men who have sex with men MSM. Cytological changes of the anal epithelium induced by HPV can be detected through an anal pap smear. This study aimed to evaluate the prevalence and epidemiological correlates of anal cytological abnormalities among relatively young MSM at risk for HIV-1 infection, to help clarify whether or not this population deserves further investigation to assess the presence of anal cancer precursor lesions.
Clin Surg. The majority of patients were HIV positive men. Other associated diagnoses included urogynecologic dysplasia, inflammatory bowel disease and organ transplantation.
January —Anal cancer incidence is on the rise in North America with rates of both invasive and in situ squamous carcinomas of the anus increasing sharply over the past several decades. While women have the highest overall likelihood of developing anal carcinomas, certain male subpopulations namely men who have sex with men and those who are HIV positive are at a dramatically increased risk of developing squamous precursors and carcinomas of the anal canal. As with the cervix, squamous carcinomas of the anus are associated with infection by oncogenic types of human papillomavirus. This anatomic region is also known as the intermediate or cloacogenic zone, and its lining can include nonkeratinized squamous, transitional, basal, cuboidal, and columnar epithelial cell types.
Study record managers: refer to the Data Element Definitions if submitting registration or results information. In HIV-infected men the incidence of SCCA squamous cell cancer of the anus was found to range from perpatient years . This prompted recommendations on screening for anal cancer in this population.
