Many laboratories offered HPV genotyping for HR-HPV-positive cases with Pap results other than a negative Pap test and ASC-US test result, such as for atypical squamous cells cannot exclude high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (ASC-H), LSIL, HSIL, and atypical glandular cells (Table 4).

En la tabla 1 se muestran las frecuencias de resultados de lectura del mismo set de citologias cervico-uterinas por los cuatro centros de la ciudad de Medellin, encontrandose que la categoria mas frecuente entre estos fue la categoria Negativo, a exception del centro 4 en donde la categoria con mayor frecuencia fue ASC-US, mientras que las categorias con menor frecuencia fueron carcinoma adenoescamoso, adenocarcinoma y el AGC-NOS.
En relacion con la distribucion de los hallazgos oncologicos segun el sector de residencia, la mayor prevalencia de ASC-US fue en San Javier, de AGC-NOS en San Antonio de Prado y de LIE de bajo y alto grado en Santa Cruz (cuadro 5).
cytology ASC-US, HPV positive: refer directly for colposcopy
Used adjunctively with the Cervista TM HPV HR test in patients with ASC-US cervical cytology results, to assess the presence or absence of specific high-risk HPV types.
El manejo de las anormalidades citologicas ASC-US utilizando la deteccion ADN-HPV complementario contribuye positivamente al diagnostico de lesiones precancerosas a un costo favorable para los sistemas de salud.
Rather than immediate colposcopy, adolescents with ASC-US or LSIL on Pap testing should undergo a repeat Pap smear in 12 months.
One arm enrolls women whose Pap results are classified as ASC-US (atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance), meaning they are neither normal nor clearly indicative of changes associated with progression to cervical cancer.
Este es un estudio exploratorio descriptivo en el que se calcularon las dimensiones fractales, con el metodo de box counting simplificado y convencional, de los contornos celular y nuclear de 13 celulas del epitelio escamoso de cuello uterino normales y con anormalidades como ASC-US y lesiones intraepiteliales de bajo grado (LEI BG), a partir de fotografias digitales de 7 celulas normales, 2 ASCUS y 4 LEI BG diagnosticadas con criterios citomorfologicos mediante observacion microscopica convencional.
HEIDELBERG, Germany -- mtm laboratories, a privately held diagnostics company developing, manufacturing and globally commercializing in vitro diagnostics for cervical cancer early detection and diagnosis, today announced the publication of a new paper showing that dual staining for p16 and Ki-67 can pinpoint the underlying high-grade cervical disease with a high degree of sensitivity and specificity in women with ASC-US or LSIL cytology results.
Laboratories were asked for their HPV testing location, methods of testing, testing personnel, monthly test volumes, whether they provided low-risk HPV (LR-HPV) testing, and percentage of positive HR-HPV results for the interpretive categories of ASC-US, ASC cannot exclude high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (ASC-H), atypical glandular cells (AGC), and if testing was as a screening test in conjunction with the Pap test in women aged 30 years and older ("cotesting").
Women who have ASC-US cytology but test HPV-negative now should be followed with cotesting at 3 years rather than 5 years before they return to routine screening.
HPV testing was introduced as a triage test for the most nebulous of Pap test results: the ASC-US (Atypical Squamous Cells of Undetermined Significance) classification.
La distribucion de la presencia de HPV de acuerdo a los resultados citologicos fue: NLIM 8 casos (18,2%), 1 caso de ASC-US (100%), 12 casos de LSIL (75%) y el 100% de los casos de HSIL (8 casos).
