Inflammatory and bloody smear containing atypical glandular cells preserving their columnar shape with enlarged nuclei (arrows). AGC. (A and B: obj. 20x)
Smear from the transformation zone and endocervix: sheets of atypical glandular cells with enlarged nuclei with similar chromatin pattern in all cells. AGC. (A and B: obj. 20x)
Sheet of atypical glandular cells with enlarged nuclei with similar chromatin pattern in all cells. Compare with some normal columnar cells in the vicinity (dotted line). AGC. (obj. 40x)

Endocervical smear: sheet of atypical cells of glandular type with enlarged nuclei and a regular chromatin pattern. Compare with normal columnar cells. Nucleoli are occasionally visible. AGC. (obj. 20x)
