Abstract:Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia (CIN) lesions are of high importance because of their relatively high frequency, potential evolution towards cervical cancer and relatively easy diagnosis. Our study concerning the incidence of Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia (CIN) covers the 2004-2008 time span, the data being collected from the Histopathology Exams (HPE) registers. During the 2004-2008 period, 631 cases of cervical dysplasia cases were discovered: 606 CIN cases (96.04%) and 25 CIGD (cervical intraglandular dysplasia) cases (3.96%). There were 377 cases of CIN I (62.21% of all CIN cases, 59.75% of all dysplasia cases), 121 cases of CIN II (19.97% of all CIN cases, 19.18% of all dysplasia cases), and 108 cases of CIN III (17.82% of all CIN cases, 17.12% of all dysplasia cases).The mean patients’ age was 44.52± 9.92 years for all cervical dysplasia cases, 44.41± 9.84 years for all CIN cases, 44.70± 9.34 years, 47.15± 10.40, and 45.94±10.66years for CIN I, CIN II, and CIN III, respectively. The mean patients’ age for the CIG case was 48.12 ± 10.66 years. There were 12 cases (3.27% of the 367cervical cancer cases diagnosed during the same period, 1.98% of the 606 CIN cases) of microinvasive carcinomas combined with CIN lesions (all of them with CIN III) and one case of cervical carcinoma combined with CIN I (0.27% of the 367 cervical cancer cases diagnosed during the same period, 0.17% of the 606 CIN cases). Early detection of CIN lesions through adequate clinical and paraclinical exams is of utmost importance for preventing cervical cancer, which remains a serious and frequent health problem in Romania.
