Abstract

In this study of 101 cervical conization specimens, the location and the size of condyloma and intraepithelial neoplasia (dysplasia and carcinoma in situ) were mapped using the last endocervical gland as the marker for the original squamocolumnar junction. Condylomatous changes were identified in 85% of cervices affected by the intraepithelial neoplasia, and were in direct contact with 68% of intraepithelial neoplasms. The proximal location of intraepithelial neoplasia in relation to the condyloma can be explained by the occurrence of neoplasia just proximal to the condyloma and subsequent expansion of neoplasia towards the cervical canal. This study adds topographic evidence linking cervical condyloma to the development of intraepithelial neoplasia.
