One of the most common malignancies to afflict women, cervical cancers have a high worldwide incidence. Papanicolau (Pap) test is the screening tool, ustilised widely for early detection of cervical neoplasias. However, a high load of Pap smears has resulted in errors associated with this test. Rescreening methods serve to monitor this primary cervical screening programme. This study was carried out to detect epithelial abnormalities which were otherwise missed on primary screening, using different rescreening methods and to identify the cause for such error.
