Clinical History:
36 year old woman with hx of abnormal Pap test elsewhere

Interpretation:
HSIL in gland

This large cluster of cells exhibiting much overlapping, high nuclear to cytoplasmic ratio, and nuclei with fine to coarsely granular chromatin represent a HSIL.

Explanatory Notes:
The absence of columnar cells with eccentric nuclei should exclude a glandular origin.
