Cytomorphologic Criteria:
On low power, the group of cells in the center may appear to be glandular and small. On closer inspection, large abnormal nuclei are evident; single lying cells are similar and consistent with HSIL.

Explanatory Notes:
When screening, it is important to distinguish abnormal squamous cells from endometrial or endocervical cells.
