Performing HPV typing on all Pap smears would be unnecessary, he explained, because smear results that are high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (HGSIL) require immediate colposcopy, while low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (LGSIL) are likely to regress spontaneously Those LGSIL that persist for more than a year should be colposcoped.
