Among the major death causes the proportion of the malignant diseases which can be screened is very high in Hungary. Among them the cervical neoplasia could be eliminated considerably with organized screening and timely, appropriate treatment. There are evidences that the incidence and mortality of cervical cancer can be decreased only by the accomplishing of organized screening. The strategy which merely introduces new procedures results in partial success only. Although the cervical cancer screening with cytologic testing goes back to several decades in our country the realization of organized screening has not yet been finished. In the early 1990s the classical Pap smear evaluation was replaced by Bethesda classification according to international proposals which was remodified in 2001. The new Bethesda system contains new categories and proposals, which may influence the clinical practice. The cooperation between the gynecologist and pathologist as well as the knowledge and appropriate application of the facilities supplied by the Bethesda 2001 system are the crucial factors in the planning and accomplishing or organized and controlled screening, furthermore in the treatment of selected patients.
