CUITINO, Luis; SCHALPER, Kurt  y  MARTINEZ, Jessica. ANALISIS DE CARACTERISTICAS CLINICAS ASOCIADAS A CITOLOGIA CERVICAL POSITIVA PARA ACTINOMICES. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2003, vol.68, n.1, pp.17-20. ISSN 0048-766X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75262003000100004.

Background: Actynomices is an opportunistic gram positive bacteria that can occasionally be detected in the female genital tract. The pelvic form is rare and it is related to use of intrauterine devices. Material and Method: 36 cases between 1995 and 2002 were analysed. We considered age at the time of the diagnosis, type and subtype of birth-control method used, length of use and symptoms atributable to their condition. Results: The mean age of presentation was 42 years. 69% were between the 36 and 47 years. 92% were users of IUD and they presented a mean time of use of 11 years. 52% were users of Lippes and 48% of Copper T. Only 44% presented symptoms. Conclusions: The presence of Actinomyces is detectable almost exclusively in IUD users, more frecuently in patients between 35 and 47 years and with less than 15 years of use. The presence of symptoms does not appear to be a relevant clinical aspect. We found no difference between Lippes and Copper T users in this study

Palabras clave : Actinomyces; PAP smear.
