abstract

  • These data confirm that benign endometrial glandular cells in cervical smears from PMP women may indicate endometrial pathology, especially if vaginal bleeding is present. Although atypical endometrial hyperplasia or carcinoma was not identified in the group of PMP women on HRT, endometrial abnormalities of a lesser degree were present in 8.5% of patients. Thus, the authors favor continued classification of benign endometrial glandular cells in cervical smears of PMP women, whether or not they are on HRT, as a glandular cell abnormality.
