Challenging Dilemmas in GYN Cytology
Amy C. Clayton, MD
Despite numerous advances that have improved the detection of cervical carcinoma and other lesions of the female genital tract, morphologic detection on GYN PAP specimens remains a foundational aspect of cervical carcinoma screening. The interpretation can be challenging, particularly when faced with lesions that have overlapping features. The discussion will focus on challenging dilemmas in the interpretation of GYN PAP specimens.
This educational activity is designed for pathologists, cytopathologists, cytotechnologists, students and other members of the cytopathology community.
- Participant's will be able to describe morphologic features of some challenging lesions that present within GYN PAP specimens
- Participant's will be able to understand which lesions have overlapping morphologic features
- Participant's will understand when equivocal categories for interpretation should be used
