Hi all....I have a new pt who was dx'd with HSV II last year...she's 16-years-old....I'm wondering if anyone knows if the pap guidelines would deem her for paps now? I know she had one last year with the diagnosis, but I'm not sure now if she needs regular follow up paps or wait until 21?
If she had one last year at diagnosis and it was negative for hpv/atypical cells then I would probably wait until age 21 to repeat unless there was indication for further testing which I believe is immunocompromised states or HIV.
