Background: The uterine cervix is a gateway to many neoplastic and non-neoplastic lesions. Non-neoplastic lesions of cervix constitute a wide variety of lesions in the hysterectomy or cervical biopsy specimen. Most of these lesions are commonly seen in women of reproductive age group. The aim of the current study was to analyze the prevalence and histological types of various non-neoplastic lesions of the cervix. Materials and methods: The present retrospective study includes 200 non-neoplastic cervical lesions which were analyzed from either hysterectomy or cervical biopsy specimens received in the Department of Pathology, Government Medical College Jammu over a period of one year. All the slides of cervix were retrieved from histopathology slide records and were reviewed. Whenever required the blocks were retrieved and recut of the sections were done. Results: The study includes 300 cases of non-neoplastic cervical lesions received as a part of hysterectomy or cervical biopsy and categorized into a variety of lesions. The most common lesion was inflammatory, reactive or reactive 224 (74.6%) cases followed by glandular hyperplasia in 44 (14.6%) cases, metaplasia in 22 (7.4%) cases and benign neoplasm in 10 (3.4%) cases. Conclusion: The spectrum of cervical lesions is vast and therefore early detection, categorization and management of certain lesions can help in preventing the complications and reducing the morbidity.
