Abstract :

OBJECTIVES – Study to compare & correlate PAP smear & Colposcopy with digene Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) test (Hyid Capture–II). METHODS– Study conducted from 1st Jan 2012 to 30 July 2012 at Department of obstetrics & Gynaecology Shrimati Kashibai Navale Medical College & General Hospital Narhe Pune. Present study is a prospective & ongoing. A total of 183 women, who were ready to pay for the HPV test formed the material. All the study subjects underwent PAP smear, colposcopy & HPV testing by digene HPV test (Hyid CaptureII). HPV testing has been presumed to be the most sensitive and specific test for detection of cancer cervix. The sensitivity and specificity of PAP smear and colposcopy were compared to that of HPV testing. Results: The sensitivity and specificity of PAP has been found to be 30% and 79.7% respectively. And that of Colposcopy has been found to be 90% and 91.3% respectively as compared to those of HPV testing. CONCLUSION– Colposcopy correlated better with HPV as compared to PAP.
