We found chronic cervicitis in 70.90% followed by chronic cervicitis with squamous metaplasia and nabothian follicles in 13.18% and chronic cervicitis with squamous metaplasia in 7.73% making altogether incidence of chronic cervicitis to 91.81%, which was close to what was found by Jha R et al [11] (96.3%) and Rather GR et al [10] (89.39%), thereby making this as the most common histological finding.
