Study of the argyrophilic nucleolar organizer regions (AGNORS), which was used extensively in cytogenetics, has been identified as a reliable indicator of cell proliferation and in turn, the malignant potential of a lesion. Premalignant and malignant lesions of the cervix are analysed for their AGNOR counts in this study. Statistically significant difference in AGNOR counts was noted in different sets of lesions. This technique can serve as a useful adjunct to routine histopathology.
