Aim: This study investigates the prevalence of non-malignant lesions of the cervix among various biopsy samples.
Methods: This case study consists of 50 cases of cervical biopsy over almost two years. The case history and clinical details of the patients were obtained.
Results: 60% of the cases that participated in this study reported white discharge per vaginum as a common clinical symptom. 4 cases (8%) showed koilocytic changes specific to the human papillomavirus during the study. Only 2% of the non-specific cervicitis showed lymphoid aggregates. Endocervical changes projected papillary endocervicitis with 9 cases (18%), squamous metaplasia with 7 cases (14%), and nabothian follicle cyst with 3 cases (6%).
Conclusion: It has been concluded that 50 cases were studied histologically, which had adequate representation of both ecto and endocervical tissue. Moreover, 31-40 years of age of patients showed the highest percentage of non-neoplastic lesions of the cervix when compared to other age groups.
Keywords: Uterine cervix, biopsy, morphology, clinical data, lesion, cytology.
