Denisa Bajraktari, Odeta Hoxhaj

The clinical use of colposcopy for the evaluation of cervical cytologic abnormalities allows the identification and successful management of most premalignant cervical lesions.The aim of this study is to describe the colposcopic features in the cervices of persistent inflammatory cellular changes on Pap smear and epithelial cell abnormalities by colposcopic biopsy. This is a prospective analytical study of 167 patients conducted in the Obstetric Gynecologic University Hospital Queen Geraldine, in Tirana, Albania during the period 2014 and 2015. The mean age was 36 years and the mean parity was 2.2. The most common symptom was vaginal discharge followed by pelvic pain and in 45 % of the patients the clinical diagnosis was pelvic inflammatory disease. Abnormal uterine bleeding and erosion of the cervix also contributed to inflammatory smear in approximately 20 % of the patients. Cervical cancer screening was proved to be an important part of preventive health care of women.
