Cytomorphologic Criteria:
Pseudokoilocytosis: cytoplasmic vacuolization without nuclear change of HPV effect.

Cytoplasmic vacuolization alone without nuclear atypia is a benign cellular change (sometimes referred to as pseudokoilocytosis) and should not be classified as LSIL or ASCUS. Pseudokoilocytosis may be seen with increased glycogen in the cytoplasm.
