The aim of the study was to evaluate the relationship between personality, stress and cervical dysplasia. Twenty women with cervical dysplasia were compared to a control group of 23 healthy women. An evaluation of their persona­lity was made by the 16 PF questionnaire; stressing events were investigated with the Paykel scale; hormonal repercussions were studied by using serum and urinary cortisol titers. Significant differences were found in intellectual capability and fancifulness, as well as ın cortısol levels. Considering the significant issues that have emerged, we feel that this research ıs worthy of further mvestıgatıon and that new evaluation parameters are necessary.
