8) These changes may be: Low-grade (LSIL), High-grade (HSIL), Possibly cancerous (malignant), Atypical Squamous cells (ACUS) or Atypical glandular cells (AGUS).
Other indications include women with low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions or atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance in whom no lesion is identified, and those with atypical glandular cells on cytology.
The evaluation of a patient with atypical glandular cells of undetermined significance is challenging because subtle colposcopic signs are frequently inaccessible to view and cytologic interpretations are extremely challenging for many cytopathologists.
2010 reported HSIL as the most common with 6 cases (40%), followed by LSIL in 3 cases (20%), then Atypical Squamous Epithelial Cells of Undetermined Significance, and atypical Glandular Cells and Squamous cell carcinoma with 2 cases each (13.
65) Not infrequently, these patients have a previous cervical smear with atypical glandular cells that may be interpreted as atypical glandular cells or suspicious for AIS.
The 2006 ASCCP guidelines suggest 3 possible options for the management of a patient with an Atypical Glandular Cells Papanicolaou test with colposcopic biopsy showing CIN 1 and a negative endocervical curettage: (1) excisional procedure; (2) review of all findings; or (3) follow-up with subsequent Papanicolaou and colposcopy in 6 months.
9) These aggregated lymphocytes can also lead to potential misinterpretation as atypical glandular cells or as adenocarcinoma.
Patients with either prior atypical glandular cells results or both LSIL and ASC-H results were listed separately.
Distribution of preceding Papanicolaou (Pap) test diagnoses divided into ''low-grade'' (atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance [ASC-US] and low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion [LSIL]) and ''high-grade'' (low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion, a highgrade squamous intraepithelial lesion cannot be ruled out [LSIL-H]; atypical squamous cells, a high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion cannot be ruled out [ASC-H]; high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions [HSIL]; atypical glandular cells [AGC]; adenocarcinoma in situ [AIS]; squamous cell carcinoma).
2) Human papillomavirus testing is also used for patient follow-up for 1 year after colposcopy, 6 to 12 months postloop, and for follow-up of postcolposcopy patients with Pap tests with atypical glandular cells.
