The present study was undertaken to detect Condylomatous changes in the cervix during course of Cytological Screening at Queen Mary's Hospital, Lucknow, (March 1989-June 1997). The prevalence rate of Condyloma among the 11,389 women examined was found to be 0.6% (75 cases). Condyloma was associated with dysplasia in 33.3% of cases and with malignancy in 2 cases (2.6%). Clinically, cervices which bled on touch and those which were hypertrophied were found to show maximum incidence of condylomas. The highest prevalence of condyloma was detected in women complaining of contact bleeding and leucorrhea. Condylomatous changes in the cervix were found most commonly in younger women of 21-30 years and after 1-5 years of consumation of marriage. This may be related to the frequency of sexual activity during this period.
