Papanicolaou smears from fifty cases of squamous cell carcinoma cervix were evaluated for cytological changes 4 and 8 weeks after radiotherapy. Radiation induced changes observed in epithelial cells were correlated with clinical and histological parameters such as stage of disease, tumor grade and time lapse after therapy. Inferences drawn from the study were employed to predict the likely impact of treatment on the individual patient which would serve as a prognostic marker in different clinical and histological settings.
