Histopathology: LSIL-HPV changes
Remarks: Shiny white lesions with raised margins visible before application of acetic acid are characteristic of cervical condylomata, caused by infection with low-risk HPV types. These are benign lesions and do not have any malignant potential. In this case, the lesions are present before application of acetic acid, they are located away from the SCJ, and no new patches are seen after application of acetic acid. Therefore, the cervix has been categorized as VIA-negative. Condylomata appear intensely greyish-white after the application of acetic acid. When condyloma are touching the SCJ, the report is VIA positive. In this case, there are some lesions at the external os also and there could be a lesion below the benign lesions.
