Abstract

The sensitivity of routine cytologic screening for the detection of adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS) is comparable to that for high-grade squamous lesions (approximately 50%). Although the authors of the current study are cautiously optimistic that screening for AIS will reduce the incidence of invasive cervical carcinoma, population-based studies published to date continue to demonstrate a rise in adenocarcinoma incidence rates.
