ASC-H. some of these cells may be histiocyte. (obj. 40x)
A small cohesive cluster of atypical cells (immature metaplasia) with nuclear enlargement, hyperchromasia and anisokaryosis. ASC-H. (obj. 20x)
Transition zone smear: bloody mucus containing cells resembling histiocytes. Possibility of atypical basal squamous cells (ASC-H). (obj. 10x)
A small cohesive cluster of atypical cells (immature metaplasia) with nuclear enlargement, hyperchromasia and anisokaryosis. ASC-H. (obj. 20x)

Compare the small group of immature, atypical metaplastic cells with markedly enlarged nuclei, on the right, with the cluster of normal columnar cells on the left: ASC-H. (obj. 20x)
A large group of immature, atypical cells with coarse and dense chromatin (circles). ASC-H. (obj. 20x)
A group of immature, atypical cells with prominent nucleoli (arrows): ASC-H. (A: obj. 20x, B: obj. 40x)
A small cohesive cluster of immature metaplasia, less atypical under high magnification (B) than under low magnification (A): this change is not typical of ASC-H. (obj. 20x)
