Cytologic correlates of papillary immature metaplasia (immature condyloma) of the cervix.


Papillary immature metaplasia (PIM) of the cervix (immature condyloma) is a variant of low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (LSIL). It is frequently associated with human papillomavirus (HPV) types 6 and 11. The purpose of this study was to characterize the cytologic changes associated with this lesion. We analyzed 10 cases of PIM from our files and… (More)
