This retrospective study aimed to describe the frequency of the results of oncotic cytology exam collected in the years 2007 and 2008 in 16 municipalities belonging to the Regional Health Department VIII/São Paulo, using data from the Information System for Uterine Cervical Cancer.

The changes in flaky epithelial cells represented 0.2% and 0.4% of results the in 2007 and 2008, and changes in glandular epithelial cells by 0.2% in 2007 and 2008.
