Abstract

Cervicovaginal infections are one of the most common problems in clinical medicine and 5 to 10 million women worldwide are diagnosed with this condition annually. Almost 95% of vaginitis cases are created with one of the three organisms including Candida albicans, Gardenella vaginalis and Trichomonas vaginalis, and they appear with symptoms such as vaginal discharge, itching, abnormal odor and vaginal discomfort. Although these infections are not life threatening, however, because of complications in patients, a waste of time and high costs of treatment had a particular importance (1). Normal cervical tissue and cancer cells may vulnerable to grow under the influence of infectious agents such as bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites, normal cervical tissue and cancer cells. One of the viruses associated with cervical cancer is the human papillomavirus (2).
