The frequent association of HPV lesions with cytological and/or hystological altera­tions of CIN in the uterine portio and in the lower genital tract suggests their possible role in the genesis of precancerous lesions of the cervix. In the systematic cytological screening, condylomatous lesions present an incidence varying from 0.52% to 1.5%. With the aim of verifying the incidence rate of condylomatosis of the portio, in the population of the women followed in the Colpocytological Service of obstetrics and gynaecology (Institute for Chil­dhood of Trieste), the Authors have performed a retrospective analysis on 17273 colpocytological ex­aminations and have found 72 cases (0.41 %) with cytological and/or hystological evidence of viral­ cytopathic effect produced by HPV. These patients have undergone various treatments of this pathology and have performed a fol­low-up. In some patients 12 cases, treated only with antiflogistictherapy or no therapy, 50% of these has shown a complete regression of viral infection in the first control after 4 months. In these patients, it is suggestive to suppose that a good immunological reactivity has brought the patient to recovery. For that, in their next work, the Authors will investigate the immuno­logical responseveness of patients affected by HPV lesions of the cervix.
