Abstract

In 114 women treated at the First Department of Gynecology Medical Academy in Cracow, between the years 1967-1985 there was compared the agreement of the histological examination of a colposcopy directed biopsy specimen with the histological examination of the operative specimen in cervical carcinoma with early invasion. In 103 cases (90.4%) histological examination of a guided biopsy specimen of early invasive carcinoma confirmed the results of the operative specimen. In 1 case the operative specimen confirmed severe dysplasia as in the guided biopsy specimen early invasive carcinoma. In 10 cases the guided biopsy specimen confirmed CIN 3 (6 cases severe dysplasia and 4 cases ca in situ), the results of operative specimen confirmed early invasive carcinoma. In 5 out the above 10 cases, the results were altered due to a 3-8 mouth delay of surgery. The divergence regards to the remaining 5 cases (4.4%). This high agreement of histological examination of a colposcopy guided biopsy specimen and operative specimen shows a significant accurate meaning of colposcopy in confirming early lesions of cervical carcinoma.
