    Sixty-five patients with benign ectopy of the uterine cervix were treated by cryosurgery in the departments of genitourinary medicine at St Luke's Hospital, Bradford, and the Airedale General Hospital, West Yorkshire, without analgesia or anaesthesia. A symptomatic cure rate of 98% was achieved. There were no serious complications. This treatment is considered to be appropriate in genitourinary clinics in the United Kingdom as these have routine screening procedures for various genital infections.
