Abstract

In 70 patients of reproductive age (20-30 years) with the papilloma virus infection of the uterine neck the microflora of vaginal contents was studied. The study revealed the specific diversity of bacteria colonizing the vagina and the uterine neck. High occurrence of Chlamydia and Gardnerella was established. The detected dysbiotic disturbances in patients with condylomatosis of the uterine neck were manifested by a decrease in the isolation rate of lactobacteria and bifidobacteria and by an increase in the isolation rate of opportunistic bacteria. The most pronounced dysbiosis in the microflora of the vagina and the uterine neck was characteristic of patients with papilloma virus infection in association with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia of the III degree.
