NILM: Repair

Cytomorphologic Criteria:
Squamous cells in flat monolayer sheet with maintenance of nuclear polarity and a prominent nucleolus in almost every cell.

Explanatory Notes:
If marked anisonucleosis, irregularities in the chromatin distribution, or variation in size and shape of nucleoli are present, so-called "atypical repair", the changes should be categorized as atypical glandular cells or atypical squamous cells.
