Presentation Date: February 25, 2014; Expires February 25, 2017
Cervical cytology varies tremendously depending on the hormonal status of the woman. This is especially true in the background of pregnancy (increased hormonal activity) or menopause (decreased hormonal activity). Increased or decreased levels of hormones create an environment, which affects the cervical mucosa and can lead to cellular changes that may be difficult to distinguish from true epithelial abnormalities. This webinar addresses these issues with especial attention to atrophy versus HSIL and the epithelial changes seen in the background of pregnancy.
