Introduction- Uterine cervix is a hub to various lesions and biopsy being a routine procedure aids in the early diagnosis and helps to reduce morbidity and mortality. Our study aims to determine the frequency and histomorphological patterns of various non-neoplastic and neoplastic cervical lesions.
Materials and Methods- This study consists of a total of 200 cases of cervical biopsies submitted for histopathology over a period of one year. Clinical details of all the patients were obtained.
Results- Among 200 cases included, majority 146(73%) were non neoplastic lesions and 54(27%) were neoplastic, out of which 40(20%) were LSIL, 6(3%) HSIL, 7(3.5%) malignant and one was a case of cervical leiomyoma. Maximum females (40.5%) subjected to biopsy belonged to the age group of 41-50 years. The mean age for neoplastic lesions was 49.2 years. Chief complaint in most cases 108(54%) was white discharge.
Conclusion- Biopsy is a valuable procedure which aids in early diagnosis, hence further management by the clinician.
