Cryotherapy of the uterine cervix can produce tissue damage of various depths. It is very important to be familiar with the extent of tissue damage in standardizing the treatment and assessing its effect. In the present work nonspecific esterase reaction was applied for the early study of tissue damage. It was found that this method can be used with benefit in the early assessment of the effect of freezing. The enzyme reaction was primarily a sensible marker of cell damage in the cervical cells.
