icannt identify the parrasite in field B.in this case what can i write in the result form without using ASC-US and how i can direct the clinician to search for trichimonais;although this findings can also seen in HPV and other infectious organisms.Field A there is focal mild irreglar nuclear membrane this ia an irrelevant finding and how i can be sure that this cytological findings goes with reactive changes not neoplastic inflammatory
