Invasive anal squamous-cell carcinoma is a rare cancer in the general population, but common in HIV-infected patients, especially in Men who have Sex with Men, although Men who have sex with Women and women infected with HIV they also have a much higher risk than the general population. There is currently no evidence on the efficacy of the different strategies used to detect and treat high-grade anal dysplasia, which can potentially advance to an invasive squamous cell carcinoma. The purpose of this thesis is to demonstrate the effectiveness of an anal dysplasia screening program based of anal cytology and high resolution anoscopy to prevent nvasive anal squamous-cell carcinoma.
