Cytomorphological Study of Cervical Smear and Its Correlation with Socio-Economic Status

Dr Shubhangi Kachore, Dr Pragati Karmarkar, Dr Chaitanya R Patil

Abstract: Pap smear was introduced in 1941 and is now the standard screening test for cervical cancer and other premalignant conditions. We conducted a study to evaluate the cytomorphological patterns of cervical smears and correlate it with socioeconomic status in the patients of a tertiary care institute of Maharashtra. Before the start of the study, we got permission from the institutional ethics committee. Written and informed consent was taken from all the patients after briefly explaining the procedure to be done. A pre designed case record form was used to collect the data. Inflammatory lesions were more common in the present study. LSIL was the most common amongst the epithelial cell abnormalities. Amongst the epithelial cell abnormalities, LSIL was found to be significantly associated with lower socio-economic status.
