Cervical erosion as result of infectious vaginitis

The vulvovaginitis can occur at any stage of life, being 90% of bacterial origin, parasitic and fungal agents such as Chlamydia trachomatis, Gardnerella vaginalis, Trichomonas vaginalis and Candida albicans causing erosion of cervical epithelium, so this study aims to demonstrate that vaginitis infectious agents cause erosion of the cervix of a total of 1033 patients who came to the Laboratorio de Biología Celular de la Facultad de Medicina de la Universidad Autónoma de Puebla, México in January 2001 to December 2009 the Cancer Screening Program which underwent Papanicolaou smears, the samples were stained by the modified Papanicolaou method and observed under a microscope. As for the results of 1033 patients, 378 showed vaginitis, of these, 301 were associated with infectious vaginitis and 77 without identified microorganisms but with signs of vaginitis (probably by irritation to some physical agent or vitamin A deficiency). The microorganisms found in 301 patients with vaginitis were as follows: 173 samples with abundant coccoid flora, 63 associated with flora coccoid and fungi, 37 fungi, 16 trichomonas, 3 coconuts associated with trichomonas, 3 fungi associated with Trichomonas, 2 with Trichomonas, fungi and coccoid, 2 with Gardnerella, 1 coccoid flora, and 1 Gardnerella associated with coconuts.
