This study was done to assess the role of colposcopy in inflammatory lesions cervical cancers and their recurrence and residual tumours. 180 cases were subjected to colposcopy and then cytology and target punch biopsies wherever required.
As a result of the study it was found that cytology and colposcopy co-relate well at the 2 extremes of pathological findings and co-relation was 90.90% and co-relation between colposcopy and target punch biopsy was 86.6%.
The conclusion drawn was that colposcopy should be done in women with abnormal cytology reports or with abnormal p/s findings. Colposcopy is helpful in determing the most abnormal area. For a target punch biopsy and a non-incastive or a minimally invastive lesion can be visualised by colposcopy.
Also cytology, colposcopy and histopathology are to be used in co-relation with each other to derive the most accurate diagnosis of a lesion.
