HSIL pattern (ASC-H, favor HSIL). A. Syncytial pattern. Hyperchromatic crowded groups of cells without distinct cell borders. The hyperchromatic nuclei vary in size and show coarsely granular chromatin (arrows). (a & b- Cervical smear [Papanicolaou stained SurePathâ„¢ Preparation], c- Cervical biopsy [Hematoxylin-eosin stained section]).B. Singly scattered (so called 'litigation') cells. Scattered, isolated, atypical cells show high N/C ratio. The nuclei have coarse chromatin without nucleoli (arrows). (a & b- Cervical smear [Papanicolaou stained SurePathâ„¢ Preparation], c- Cervical biopsy [Hematoxylin-eosin stained section]).
