OBJECTIVE To analyze follow-up data on atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (ASCUS) based on morphologic characteristics. STUDY DESIGN Five years of follow-up was obtained on a cohort of 437 consecutive patients from 1986 who had initial diagnoses of ASCUS, with a further categorization of type based on the maturity of the atypical cells. All such categorizations were made on the basis of specific cytologic criteria. Follow-up cytology and/or biopsy was available on 366… CONTINUE READING
