The endocervical epithelium of histologically confirmed dysplasia and carcinoma-in-situ cases of cervix uteri was examined for the presence or absence of intraepethelial glandular Neoplasia (CIGN). Results from 80 cases were compared with equal number of controls who were being operated for reasons other than Neoplasia. In the present communication we have used the criteria of Nuclear enlargement and elongation, hyperchromasia, stratification, increased N/C ratio, pleomorphism and dence clumping to distinguish CIGN from normal endocervical epithelial lining using the criteria mentioned above we recorded CIGN in eleven cases of test group while in two of controls which implied a statistically significant (p less than .5) association of CIGN with case series as compared to controls. Among the test group; 1, 2 (15.3%), 3 (23%) and 5 (10%) cases were associated with mild, moderate, sever dysplasia and carcinoma-in-situ respectively.
