The critical review of a series of 44 microcarcinomas, some originally diagnosed as intraepithelial neoplasias, others as clearly invasive carcinomas, leads the Authors to believe that in early invasive lesions biopsy is unable to the suggest the right therapeutical approach. They advocate a new diagnostico-therapeutical approach in preclinical cervical lesions bioptically diagnosed as invasive carcinomas. The clinical, colposcopic and microcolposcopic re-examination will, in some cases, suggest the advisability of conization. If the serial study of cone leads to a diagnosis of microcarcinoma, the examination of various prognostic factors will suggest the final treatment suitable for each specific lesion.
