Fine chromatin and regular nuclear contours?

Fine chromatin and regular nuclear contours are just a small part of characteristics that would bring you to a definite diagnosis of NILM. Honestly, there are many cases of LSIL that could have fine chromatin or even regular nuclear contours. What you really need to include is the N/C ratio and that it is within normal limits. The fact that you see the nucleus slightly enlarged would alert you, but you would think the enlargement is due to some sort of cellular reaction due to the amount of cytoplasm around. Eosinophilic cytoplasm usually indicates a degnerative process because why? intermediate cells usually are cyanophilic, plus look at the stuff inside the cytoplasm and its morphology. What does that indicate to you?
