Fig. 8.41 Atypical reparative reaction.
Sheet-like aggregate of immature
cells with variation in cellular size and shape, together with a somewhat
coarse, slightly hyperchromatic nuclear chromatin and prominent nucleoli
(Papanicolaou x OI).
Fig. 8.42 Atypical reparative reaction.
Sheet-like aggregate of immature
cells with indistinct cytoplasmic borders, round-to-oval and irregular nuclei,
coarse, somewhat hyperchromatic nuclear chromatin, and very prominent,
often pleomorphic macronucleoli. In the right upper and lower corner
slightly atypical squamous metaplastic cells (Papanicolaou x OI).
Fig. 8.43
Slight
atypia
of squamous cells in a cervical smear with evidence
of a bacterial infection (Papanicolaou x MP).
Fig. 8.44 Karyorrhexis.
Loss of nuclear structure, dissolved nuclear
membrane, irregular clumping of chromatinic material (Papanicolaou x OI).
