Jin Hwa Hong, Jae Kwan Lee

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Recently, consensus guideline for the early detection of cervical cancer in Korea has been developed and published. It was developed based on preexisting guidelines, including 2006 American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology (ASCCP) consensus guidelines. However, some consensus guidelines have recently revised and updated in line with the issuance of our guidelines, such as ASCCP, American Cancer Society guidelines. Unfortunately, these updated contents were not reflected in our guidelines. In addition, Cochrane Gynaecological Cancer Group published their meta-analyses data on human papillomavirus testing versus repeat cytology for triage of atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance and low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion cytology. Therefore, in the following context, we will discuss on the updated contents, differences from our guidelines, and future research recommendations.
