December Editor's Choice

The article selected as Editor’s Choice from the December issue is a review on the terminology of preinvasive cervical lesions in the UK cervical screening programme by Professor C Simon Herrington. He argues that the UK programme should now adopt the terms low-grade and high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (SIL) recommended by the Lower Anogenital Squamous Terminology (LAST) project rather than cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) for reporting preinvasive squamous lesions of the cervix, supporting the argument for moving to a 2-tier system for both cyto- and histopathology. This article is free to access for three months.
