ABSTRACT

Photodynamic diagnosis (PDD) and therapy (PDT) are modern methods that are evaluated in different fields in gynecology. PDD is currently under investigation in gynecologic conditions such as cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN), vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia (VIN), endometriosis, and ovarian cancer. PDT has been successfully evaluated in HPV-related genital dysplasia such as CIN and VIN, in genital warts, in local recurrent breast cancer, and for endometrial ablation. The aim of this review is to give an overview about current applications.
