Abstract

To evaluate mild cervical dysplasia, the results of Papanicolaou smears were reviewed for a 6-month period in an inner-city family planning program. Papanicolaou smear evidence of mild dysplasia was consistent with the biopsy diagnosis in most cases. A single Papanicolaou smear is not a reliable indication of condylomata, nor is a single normal Papanicolaou smear in this setting completely reassuring. Persistent mild dysplasia is an indicator of high risk for cervical dysplasia and cervical infection. Aggressive initial cervical surgery is not indicated, but close follow-up is required.
