The frequency of the Pap test and the incidence of dysplastic and neoplastic lesions of the uterine cervix in the province of Trieste from 1/7/85 to 30/6/88 have been analysed. Over this period, the annual frequency of screening was 11% of the resident female population, with considerable differences from one age class to another. In the age group between 15 and 29, in which CIN 1 incidence is at its maximum, the frequency of screening is much lower than it is among subjects of average age. It is considered that it would be more advisable to detect the cervical lesion in the earliest stage and so bring forward performance of the first Pap test to a younger age.
