Background and Aim: One of neoplasia and infection screening methods is pap-smear. Screening methods, once per three-year intervals among 20 to 65-year-old women, diminish the incidence and mortality rates of cervix cancer up to 90%. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to investigate the histological pap-smear results epidemiologically in Birjand Imam Reza hospital during two consecutive years. Materials and Methods: In this descriptive cross-sectional study histogical documents in hospital histology archive, during two sequential years, were studied. Variables such as the rate of infections frequency, age, delivery number, abortion number etc. were considered. Data were subjected to SPSS software and descriptive statistics. Results: The results of this study from 2918 archived files showed that: in 91.9% of cases no kind of infection has been reported, meanwhile from 8.1% of cases: 3.3% fungal infection were with the mean age of 33.5 years and mean pariety of 2.5, 3.8% of cases were infected by tricomonas with the mean age of 32 years and mean pariety of 3.1% had bacterial infection after breast feeding with the mean age of 29 years and pariety of 2. Moreover it was shown that time gaps between post abortion infection is fewer than post partum infection. No significant relationship was found between infection and variables such as age and pariety. Conclusion: It is suggested that the probability of post partum infection is more than that of post abortion.
