Re: Severe Dysplasia with Glandular Invovlement
From my understanding there are two cell types of the cervix which can be affected: squamous and glandular. Most (90%) have squamous lesions, thus the diagnosis of CinI,II,III. If glandular cells are involved it may present as a lone occurance or with squamous infection (sounds like what you have?) Did they do an ECC during your colposcopy? If this was positive then you have glandular involvement. It is also difficult to understand since different pathology labs/ gyns categorize lesions slightly differently. I was diagnosed with a glandular lesion. But on my path report from the histology specimen it stated reactive squamous and endocervical (glandular) changes. Also, my ECC (endocervical curretage) was normal which doesn't match up completely with my lesion. The endocervical canal is comprised mainly of glandular cells. Although, the transformation zone is comprised of both squamous and glandular cells. Let me know if you have any more information on your results.
