Cytological screening for early detection of cervical carcinoma has been in progress at this centre since Aprii 1971, and until October 1998 cervical smears of a total of 19,651 women have been examined. Cytological evidence of Herpes simplex viral infection has been found in 87 cases (0.4%) and the infection was associated with malignancy in 34.4% (30cases). Cervical dysplasia was concomittantly observed in 22 cases - (25.1%). In the remaining 35 cases, marked inflammatory changes were seen. Pathological lesions on the cervix were present in 66.6% of the 87 cases while viral infection was associated with gynaecological symptoms in 44.8%. Viral infection showed progressive rise with increasing age, and was encountered maximum above 40 years of the age. The accumulated data revels strong association of Herpes simplex with cervical carcinogenesis.
