Background: Carcinoma uterine cervix is one of the leading causes of cancer death among women worldwide. To detect this widely prevalent cancer at an early stage, the simplest test has been a pap smear. Reporting of pap smears is done by using The Bethesda System 2001. However, various benign processes can also be recognized morphologically, and diagnosis of these entities can make an important contribution to patient care.
Methods: Cyto-histopathological correlation of lesions of uterine cervix in 150 cases.
Results: Total numbers of cases correlated in this study were 150. Age group of women, ranged from 23 to 75 years. Majority of the patients belonged to the group of 21 to 30 years.
Conclusion: 75% of the cases showed cyto-histopathological correlation. One rare case of adenosquamous carcinoma was detected cytologically and was later confirmed by histopathology.
