The histology findings of pre-clinical neoplasia of the cervix at cone biopsy were compared with the previous colposcopic assessment in fifty-eight patients. In 84.5% of cases colposcopy prediction was within one grade of the histology findings. This close correlation is im­portant where suitability for local ablative therapy depends on accurate colposcopic assessment prior to tissue destruction.
