Few adolescents with PID screened for HIV, syphilis
Less than a third of adolescent girls diagnosed with pelvic inflammatory disease in the ED were also screened for syphilis and HIV, according to a study presented at the Pediatric Academic Societies meeting. "The frequency of HIV and syphilis testing in adolescents diagnosed with [pelvic inflammatory disease] has been under-investigated," Dr. Amanda Jichlinski, resident physician of pediatrics at the Children's National Health System, and colleagues wrote.
