Two groups of patients were examined and compared. One of them had been made up of 113 women from whom positive cytological responses had been recorded to colposcopy, and the other included 59 women with negative findings. The titres to HSV-2-infection were higher with significance in the first group. The authors conclusion is that HSV-2 infection might be one of the risk factors contributory to carcinogenesis in the uterine cervix.
