Clinico-Pathological Study of Non-Neoplastic Lesions of Uterine Cervix with their Histopathological Categorization

Naveen Kumar.B.J | Vamseedhar Annam [3]

Abstract: The non-neoplastic lesions of the uterine cervix are frequently seen in the histopathology departments. Of the 821 cervical specimens received, 909 non-neoplastic lesions were evaluated. Most of the patients presented with vaginal bleeding, mass per vagina and white discharge. Based on histomorphology, the non-neoplastic lesions were divided into 3 categories i. e. Non-Infective Non-Adaptative lesions [76.79 %], Adaptative lesions [13.64 %] and Infective lesions [9.57 %]. These lesions have overlapping symptoms and were clinically misdiagnosed to be malignant neoplasm. Therefore, familiarity regarding histopathological examination of these non-neoplastic cervical lesions with categorization can assist in appropriate management and prevent complications. Hence, the present study was undertaken.
