This descriptive comparative study was aims to measure the sensitivity and specificity of cytological, immunocytochemical and in situ-hybridization detection methods for Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) in cervical smear. Ninety seven cervical smears were collected from married females with different gynecological complains and twenty one of them were well diagnosed with cervical cancer. In cervical smears , HPV classical cytomorphological changes (Koilocytosis and/or dyskeratosis) were detected in 36% while HPV K1-h 8 antigen was detected in 19% by immunocytochemistry staining method and HPV DNA was detected in 51% by in situ-hybridization technique . HPV DNA was detected in 90% of ladies with cervical cancer smears and in 39% of ladies with other complains smears. Using in situhybridization as a gold standard test cytology has a sensitivity of 67.3% and specificity of 85.5%. Immunocytochemistry has a sensitivity of 36.7%, a specificity of 97.7%. This study concludes that cytomorphological screening for HPV in cervical smears is suitable for clinical practical purposes in compare to antigen and DNA detection method.
