atypical?

Nuclei of the metaplastic cells are large and polymorhpic - in my opinion, these cells are atypical.

Ahem... Atypical?

I think you forgot to observe the N/C ratio criteria.... it is...what.. super low... very uniform nuclei in size and shape... FYI: the term atypical means: markedly reactive. So anytime the term atypical is used, the cells need to look super reactive.. to the point.. where you question whether it could be LSIL. The super dense, intact cytoplasm and no degenerative changes would already take you out of the atypical category. Have a nice day!
