Introduction: Cervical erosion and squamouse intraepithelial lesion of low grade are most common gynecological problems of women. These changes on cervix are cause of painful coitus and enhanced vaginal secretion. Cryotherapy is widely accepted method in treating these changes and sympthoms. Aim: The aim of this study is to examine the efficiency of cryotherapy in eliminating erosion of cervics and LSIL, as well as conditions following these states. Patients and methods: Cryotherapy was performed in 124 women with cervical erosion (N-74) and LSIL (N-50). Sympthoms that were followed are: vaginal secretion, abnormal vaginal bleeding and pain. Assessment of epithelisation of cervix and evaluation of sympthoms were done 4 and 6 weeks after cryotherapy and PAP test after 4 months in women with LSIL. Statistical method used in result processing was X2 test. Results: The average age of examined women is 37,75±8,2. Enhanced vaginal secretion had 87,09% (N-120), painful coitus 61,29% (N-76), pain in lesser pelvis 52,41% (N-65) and abnormal vaginal bleeding 28,22% (N-35). Erosion of cervix had 14% (N-7) of women with LSIL. After cryotherapy, enhanced vaginal secretion remained in 21,77% (N-27) of women, painful coitus remained in 8,06% (N-10), pain in lesser pelvis remained in 5,6% (N-7) and abnormal vaginal bleeding in 6,4% (N-8). Four weeks after cryotherapy, complete epithelisation of cervix was in 87,90% (N-109) and after six weeks in 93,54% (N-116) of examined women. LSIL was eliminated in 92% (N-46) of women after cryotherapy and in 8% (N-4) results remained the same. Conclusion: Cryotherapy is successful method of elimination of cervical erosion, LSIL and pains with enhanced vaginal secretion. [Mater Sociomed 2018; 30(4.000): 294-296]
