Table 2 Distribution of cervicitis and SIL according to HIV serostatus

From: Cervical cytological changes in HIV-infected patients attending care and treatment clinic at Muhimbili National Hospital, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

HIV status LSIL
No (%)
HSIL
No (%)
Total SIL No (%) P-Values Acute Cervicitis No (%) Chronic Cervicitis No (%) Total Cervicitis No (%) Total Cervical Lesions P-Values
HIV +ve 27(58.6) 19(41.3) 46 (38.3) 0.25 32(94.1) 2(5.9) 34(28.3) 80(66.7) P = 0.61
HIV -ve 13(76,4) 4(23.5) 17(34.0) 0.25 14(100.0) 0(0.0) 14 (28.0) 31(62.0) P = 0.61
Total 40 (63.5) 23(36.5) 63(56.8) 0.25 46(95.8) 2(4.2) 48(43.2) 111(100.0) P = 0.61
  1. This table shows that the distribution of cervicitis did not vary with HIV serostatus and the distribution of HSIL appeared more likely to vary with HIV serostatus compared to LSIL although both were not statistically significant
