Author(s): Dr. Rema V Nair, Dr. Seetha PM and Dr. Sowbharnika CP
Abstract:
Introduction: The study highlights and ascertains the utility of cytology in picking up early cervical cancer in patients with leucorrhoea.
Aims and objectives: To evaluate the pattern of cervical smear cytology at a tertiary care centre
Materials and Methods: Cytopathological changes observed in the cervical squames were graded according to the Bethesda system for reporting cervical cytology.
Results: The cytological patterns were found to be 1) Normal-4 (2.6%) 2) Inflammatory-135(90%) 3) LSIL-4(2.6%) 4) HSIL-1(0.6%) 5) ASCUS-6(4%).
Discussion: Cytological evaluation revealed as expected, maximum number of inflammatory smears (90%) and cervical squamous intraepithelial lesion was found in 5 cases.
Conclusion: As it is known that the cervical squamous intraepithelial lesions (SIL) have long course to turn into the invasive stage, its detection early by “Pap Smear” reduces the mortality and morbidity with cervical cancer.
