Abstract

Glandular cell abnormalities (AGC) are found less commonly than squamous cell abnormalities, about in less than 1% of cervical cytologic samples(1). Their low prevalence , the relative absence of findings at colposcopy and a broad spectrum of differential diagnosis pose significant diagnostic challenges to pathologists and clinicians. According to the Bethesda System 2001, glandular cell abnormalities are classified as: AGC (endometrial, endocervical or not otherwise specified) and AGC favor neoplasia (FN)(2). Obyective: Our study evaluates the presence of significant histologic lesions in women with AGC and AGC FN diagnosed on conventional Pap Test between January 2010 and December 2015 in the Department of Pathologic Anatomy of the University of Trieste.
