STUDY OBJECTIVE: To document the ability to use a prostaglandin analogue to achieve satisfactory colposcopy in a patient with cervical stenosis and unsatisfactory colposcopy. DESIGN: Case report. RESULTS: Satisfactory colposcopy was achieved by using 100mg of Misoprostol orally, administered the night before the planned colposcopic evaluation. CONCLUSION: In the presence of persistent atypia in an adolescent female with an unsatisfactory colposcopy, consider using a prostaglandin analogue for adequate evaluation of the endocervix, prior to proceeding with an ablative or excisional therapy.
