Various clinical reviews taken from those chapters have been provided in the course of the overseas symposium, 'Carcinoma of the Cervix,' which was once held from September 4-7, 1980 in Kiawah Island, Charleston, South Carolina, U.S.A. a world collection of study investigators have contributed experiences designed to be informative to scientific, graduate and post-graduate scholars, in addition to clinicians, oncologists and investigators operating within the sector of lady carcinoma. An try out has been made to supply a complete assurance of present development in carcinoma of the cervix. specifically, the subsequent significant parts are incorporated: Epidemiology, Histology & Histochemistry, extremely­ constitution, body structure & Biochemistry, Genetics & Cytogenetics, Immunology, analysis, and Patho­ body structure & problems. significant adjustments have happened in occurrence and mortality charges for carcinoma of the cervix some time past decade. Mass screening courses and their skill to observe past level illnesses have attributed to a discount in invasive ailments. such a lot cervical cancers should be avoided through an extension of cytologic screening courses in excessive chance parts. larger assets has to be supplied to arrive excessive danger parts as a way to hinder the incidence of cervical cancer.

In 124 invasive epidermoid carcinomas, tumor differentiation was moderate in 108, good in 8 and poor in 8. Adenocarcinomas were mostly well differentiated. 5% V. 8% epidermoid, glandular and reserve cell types (Abel 1973) and the degree of differentiation was noted (Ferenczy 1977). In epidermoid carcinoma, the international histologic typing as large cell keratinizing, large cell nonkeratinizing and small cell non keratinizing was followed (Poulsen et al. 1975). For microinvasive epidermoid carcinoma the maximal limit for stromal invasion was 3 mm from the highest basal lamina.

Presently there are more females than males at the University of Kuwait, and it is becoming more common to see women coming to the gynecology clinics only for a 'Pap smear' check-up without having gynecologic complaints. It is this growing demand that will stimulate the authorities to reinforce the cytology services. Government health facilities in Kuwait, including cytology, are open to everyone free of charge, so that the financial factor is not a deterrent to the individual, nor does it pose an appreciable taxation over a wealthy state like Kuwait.
