The studied variables were: age in years completed at the time of diagnosis, age in years of the first sexual relations and the number of births. A data file was created in Excel where the necessary calculations were made. Absolute numbers and percentages were used to summarize the qualitative and average variables, standard deviation, minimum and maximum values for the quantitative variables. Results: an incidence of atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance of 0.37 % was obtained, it predominated in women older than 40 and younger than 50 years old and most of them started their sexual relations before the age of 20 and had 2 children. Conclusion: the report incidence of atypical squamous cells during the studied period of time was low; it predominated in middle-aged women, in those who had an early sexual relation and in multiparous women.
