Should LSIL-H be a distinct cytology category? A study on the frequency and distribution of 40 human papillomavirus genotypes in 808 Women
Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia
Neoplasms, Squamous Cell
Uterine Cervical Neoplasms
Women found to have LSIL-H on a Papanicolaou test appear to have a unique HPV distribution pattern that clearly differs from LSIL and is comparable to that for HSIL, suggesting an increased risk of high-grade lesions over that of women with LSIL. Recognizing LSIL-H as an independent diagnostic category may help in the early identification of the high-risk subgroup that may require a management algorithm comparable to that for patients with HSIL.
