Background: Cervical cancer is the major health burden in India. For detection in early stage, the screening test is Pap smear. To check the sensitivity and specificity of Bethesda system, the cytological findings have to be correlated with histology considering histopathology as gold standard. Material and methods: The study was retrospective review of Pap smears in Dhiraj General Hospital in the period from November 2013 to December 2014. They were correlated with corresponding follow-up biopsies using revised 2001 Bethesda System. Results: Most of patients were of group 41-50 years which were 106 (42.4%), followed by group 51-60 years which was 53 (21.2%). Majority of cases were of parity 3 which were 71 (28.4%) followed by of parity 4 which were 53 (21.2%), with mean parity of patient was 3.30. Conclusion: The Pap smear has good sensitivity and specificity in detecting pre-neoplastic and neoplastic lesions of uterine cervix.
