Abstract Anal squamous cell cancer is an uncommon malignancy caused by infection with oncogenic strains of Human papilloma virus. Anal cancer is much more common in immunocompromised persons, including those infected with Human immunodeficiency virus. High-grade anal intraepithelial neoplasia HGAIN , the precursor of anal cancer, is identified by clinicians providing care for patients with anorectal disease, and is increasingly being identified during screening of immunosuppressed patients for anal dysplasia.
Current treatment options for management of anal intraepithelial neoplasia
Short-leg cast immobilization or splinting is another treatment option in such cases. To determine the clinical efficacy and antiedema effects of cohesive taping and short-leg cast immobilization in acute low-type ankle sprains of physically active patients, we performed a preliminary clinical study to assess objective evidence for edema and functional patient American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society AOFAS scores with these alternative treatments. Fifty-nine physically active patients were included: If a sprain was moderate grade II or mild grade I , we used functional taping or short-leg cast immobilization for 10 days. In each group, edema significantly decreased and AOFAS scores increased indicating that both treatment methods were effective. With the numbers available, no statistically significant difference could be detected. Each treatment method was effective in decreasing the edema and increasing the functional scores of the ankle.

As a result, HRA with biopsy can be used to identify and map the area of the anus with AIN and can be performed periodically as part of surveillance to identify AIN before it becomes macroscopic. Depending on practice location and the local prevalence of HIV, in most areas, the majority of patients with HGAIN are now immunosuppressed and more likely to have multifocal disease, where examination limited to visible macroscopic disease underestimates the AIN disease burden. The planet looks a little bland in those images. Adherence is likely better with destructive surgical treatments or excisions than with topical treatments. The survey findings reflected surgical opinion at a time when the epidemiology of HGAIN was changing.
