HSIL: parabasal cells with nuclear enlargement, irregular nuclear outlines and coarse chromatin. A LSIL could be discussed because of the abundance of cytoplasm and the perinuclear clearing. (obj. 20x)

Not a brilliant example of high grade

Hyperchromatic but fairly bland looking nuclei. Perinuclear halos led me up the inflammatory path!

asc-us?

abundant cytoplasm, few cells, N/C ratio not much high. why not asc-us. I could, may be, say lsil. why is it hsil?

Take the worse of the two

While it\'s true that the cell on the bottom left has features of ASC-US/LSIL, the two cells in the middle are more remarkably parabasal sized cells, putting you into the category of ASC-H or HSIL. Since the nucleus shows irregular features, up the call, and this will immediately bring you to HSIL. Remember, ASC-US & LSIL occur in intermediate/superficial cells. The cells in the middle are much, much smaller.
