The study was carried out in 574 women treated with radiation for carcinoma cervix for detection of postradiation dysplasia in the course of followup ranging from 1 to 10 years. Dysplastic changes were detected in 52 cases (9.1%) and 26 of these 52 cases were moderate. The mean period of emergence of dysplasia was found to be 1.6 years and mean age was 42 years. Dysplasia was also found to occur higher with increasing stage of cancer. However, dysplasia tended to appear at early age but at late period with increasing stage of cancer. The cytological follow-up of radiation treated cases of cervical carcinoma appears to be a valuable tool for detecting occurrence of postradiation dysplasia and it cautions the clinician for their timely adequate treatment thus paving way for better chances of survival of the patient.
