A highly significant association between the presence of columnar cells and anal intraepithelial lesion (p<0.001) and a significant association between the presence of columnar cells and atypical cytology when a visible lesion was absent (p=0.0019) were found. No significant relationship was found between the presence/degree of dysplasia and CD4+ T-cell counts or HIV viral load. Lack of clinical follow-up precluded evaluation of the false negative rates in this data set.
