Background: Widely cited studies reflecting use of conventional Pap smears have emphasized the significance of ASC-US Pap tests preceding histopathologic diagnoses of CIN2/3. Data reflecting current widespread U.S. use of liquid-based cytology (LBC), computer-assisted screening, and adjunctive HPV testing remain limited.
Design: A computer-based search was performed for a study period between July 2008 and July 2010 to identify surgical pathology cases reported as cervical CIN2/3 in the CoPath database of a large womens' hospital practice. Previous computer-imaged LBC ThinPrep Pap (TPPT) and hrHPV (Hybrid Capture 2) test results were recorded.
Results: 717 cases of histopathologic CIN2/3 diagnoses were identified, including 600 patients with LEEP/cone biopsies and 42 with subsequent hysterectomies. The average patient age was 33 years with a range of 17 to 91 years. 208 cases (29%) showed no reasons for cervical biopsy in our files. The abnormal Pap test results which led to histopathologic diagnoses of CIN2/3 were available for 509 (71%) women. Of these particular Pap test results, 99 were ASC-US, 66 were ASC-H, 82 were LSIL, 256 were HSIL and 6 were AGC. 314 of 717 CIN2/3 diagnoses had available prior Pap test results (Table 1). Available prior HPV test results are listed in Table 2.

Conclusions: LBC Pap test results of HSIL were associated with 50% of 508 histopathologic CIN2/3 diagnoses, followed by ASC-US in 19%, LSIL in 16%, and ASC-H in 13%. Over a three year period preceding CIN2/3 diagnoses, a significant number of isolated negative Pap (58.6%) or negative HPV test (17.6%) results were noted, supporting the value of combined cytologic and HPV co-testing.
