Abstract: OBJECTIVE: The objective of the study was to evaluate the risk of anal squamous intraepithelial lesions (ASILs) in immunocompetent women with genital squamous intraepithelial lesions (GSILs). STUDY DESIGN: This was a cross-sectional study that included 260 immunocompetent women divided into 2 study groups: 1 group included 184 women diagnosed with GSIL by genital colposcopy and biopsy, and the other included 76 controls. All subjects were submitted to anoscopy followed by a biopsy if pertinent. RESULTS: Of 184 GSIL women, 32 (17.4%) had ASIL (P < .001). The risk of ASIL was 13.1 times greater for GSIL women when there were 3 or 4 genital sites involved. All cases of high-grade ASIL were found in women with cervical GSILs. Among risk factors, anal intercourse without a condom demonstrated an important association with ASIL (prevalence ratio adjusted for age = 2.6). CONCLUSION: There seems to be a strong association between ASIL and multicentric GSIL. Another factor related to ASIL was the practice of unprotected anal intercourse.
