Cervical intraepithelial neoplasias (CIN) are incipient precursor lesions for squamous cell carcinomas of the cervix uteri.

Cells of an invasive cervical carcinoma or other malignant tumours V invasive carcinoma
About 85% of invasive cervical carcinomas are squamous cell carcinomas. A distinction is made between keratinizing and non-ceratinizing carcinomas and between large and small cell carcinomas. The proportion of adenocarcinomas is about 10% (9-13%), the proportion of adenosquamous carcinomas is about 5% (2-8%). Adenocarcinomas are treated like squamous cell carcinomas.

The development of a CIN is not as a rule, but rather rarely the consequence of a cervical HPV infection. The persistence of the high-risk HPV infection is decisive for the possible development of cancer. Only chronic infections of the same HPV type can lead successively to the development of in situ carcinomas and later to invasive carcinomas. Cofactors for this are multiparity (> 5 births), long-term use of ovulation inhibitors, cigarette abuse, age > 30 years, immunodeficiency. The average latency period between initial HPV infection and invasive carcinoma is 15-30 years.

For prophylaxis, a bivalent vaccine (Cervarix; against HPV 16, 18) and a quadrivalent vaccine (Gardasil; against HPV 6, 11, 16, 18) are available today. The STIKO recommends vaccination for girls and young women aged between 12-17 years. As a rule, the vaccination in the recommended age range is also reimbursed by the statutory health insurance companies. Women who have not been vaccinated at the age of 12-17 LJ, the age recommended by STIKO, can also benefit from vaccination against HPV. It is the responsibility of the doctor to inform his patients of the benefits and risks of the vaccination on the basis of the vaccine approval.
