27.52 MB PDF
Th e Pap test has had a remarkable history, essentially in establishing the field of cytopathology and greatly contributing to the prevention of cervical cancer worldwide. In spite of numerous controversies and challenges throughout the decades, the Pap test remains one of the most utilized and successful cancer screening tests and has been adapted to meet the needs of modern patients and physicians. Although it is uncertain how the development of human papillomavirus testing and vaccination will affect the future use of the Pap test, pathologists and trainees must remain intimately familiar with the cytomorphologic characteristics of the cervicovaginal cytology samples as well as their histopathologic correlates. Educational curricula for cytomorphology criteria, laboratory methodologies, and quality assurance/quality control processes learned over the years from the Pap test form a foundation on which the rest of cytopathology expands.
Th e intention of this atlas is to expose the reader to highquality images that represent the various morphologies seen within each diagnostic category. Th e images are coupled with captions that direct the reader’s attention to important histomorphological features and provide high-yield, updated information about each entity. Th e atlas may be used as a study guide or as a quick reference next to the microscope.
