Transition zone smear with some metaplastic squamous cells. (obj. 20x)
Transition zone smear with squamous cells sometimes of metaplastic type, from a woman with a florid ectopy. (obj. 20x)
Transition zone smear with a sheet of metaplastic squamous cells. (obj. 20x)
Transition zone (TZ): squamous metaplastic cells, isolated or attached to each other, with delicate cytoplasmic processes. (obj. 10x)
Squamous metaplastic cells, isolated or attached to each other, with delicate cytoplasmic processes (purple arrows). Glycogen accumulation is responsible for the yellowish colour of cytoplasm (black arrows). (obj. 20x)
