Characteristics of high grade dyskaryotic
cervical smears likely to be missed on rapid rescreening.
The best separation between normal and dyskaryotic
samples is achieved by assessment of the L1/L2 CpGs at nucleotide positions 5600 and 5609 .
Cervical PAP smear showed no evidence of dyskaryotic
or malignant cells.
Acetic acid also removed water from the cells temporarily, particularly from the area of high nuclear density like immature squamous epithelium and dyskaryotic
In dry atrophic smears, the cytoplasm frequently becomes eosinophilic and nuclear pyknosis and karyorrhexis can assume significant proportions; this appearance, together with senile inflammatory changes, can lead to substantial difficulty in recognizing dyskaryotic
cells in atrophic postmenopausal smears.
-- It may not be necessary to refer women for colposcopy after a single, mildly dyskaryotic
cervical smear, according to a poster presentation by A.S.
Use of semi-quantitative PCR for human papillomavirus DNA type 16 to identify women with high grade cervical disease in a population presenting with a mildly dyskaryotic
