Atlas Interpretation:
Interpreted image
Type of Preparation:
SurePath/ LBP

Magnification:
High

Interpretation:
HSIL

Cytomorphologic Criteria:
Isolated dysplastic cells are small and round to oval with scant cytoplasm. Cellular changes are consistent with HSIL and correlate well with a biopsy showing CIS.

Explanatory Notes:
Isolated, small, dysplastic cells should not be confused with histiocytes or endometrial cells. The presence of similar cells consistent with moderate dysplasia provides a clue as to the nature of the lesion.

Follow-up:
CIS
