The outcome of the cervical cancer screening in Storstrøm, West Zeeland and Bornholm counties in 1979-1989 was evaluated. About 6% of the screened women had at least one non-negative smear requiring further follow-up. 2% were women with positive smears. Only 3/4 of women with positive smears were followed up within the first three months after the positive smear. Late follow-up probably resulted in a few cases of invasive cervical cancer. The computerized pathology registration system permits automatic monitoring of women with positive smears, and it is suggested that these facilities should be used systematically.
