Abstract Analysis of 4458 patients evaluated by cytology at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Kasr El-Einy Hospital, Cairo University, during the years 1981 to 1985 revealed that only 1.07\% of these women had abnormal cytology. The prevalence rate for cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) was remarkably low, corresponding to 3.59/1000 for CIN grade I, 2.28/1000 for CIN II, and 1.16/1000 for CIN III. The mean age for CIN was 44.23 years while that for cervical cancer was 54.32. This low prevalence rate of CIN among Egyptian females, together with the late onset of the disease in comparison with other populations, calls for further study of the epidemiologic characteristics of this low-risk community.
