A total of 24 cases (27.3%) had no prior cytologic data in our electronic medical records before tissue diagnosis, with 16 being invasive SqCa cases and 8 being microinvasive SqCa cases.
Our retrospective study is relatively small, with only 88 cases of SqCa identified within the evaluated time frame, presumably owing to enhanced early detection of cervical cancer in the United States.
These data suggest cytology is superior at detecting abnormalities in the setting of SqCa. Moreover, our results indicate that Pap/HPV cotesting provides superior sensitivity and yields important clinical information in a portion of ASCUS/LSIL cytologic diagnoses.
Therefore, we conclude that the discordance seen in this study should not reflect on the individual performances of SqCa detection methodologies discussed.
(18) Although our study used either the HC2 or a polymerase chain reaction-based HPV detection method, and not the Cobas HPV test, 3 of 14 women (21.4%) would have gone with an undetected SqCa for a period of time had their clinical samples been tested with the HPV testing alone.
For these patients, the most frequently observed Pap test result before tissue diagnosis of SqCa of the cervix was HSIL or above.
