Twenty patients bearing lesions caused by human papillomavirus and intraepithelial neoplasia of the lower genital tract and treated with electrosurgical excision of the lesions are presented. The technique used, the benefits of the histopathologic assessment of the specimen, and the changes that this procedure produces in the specimen tissue are analyzed. In general terms, the pre and postoperative diagnosis were concordant and the early and late morbidity was found to be not significative. The efficacy of this therapy in the long term remains to be evaluated.
