Objective. We compared follow-up biopsy findings and positive predictive values (PPVs) for cervical intraepithelial neoplasia 2 or worse (CIN 2+) in cases that were cytologically interpreted as low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (LSIL); high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (HSIL); LSIL, cannot exclude HSIL (LSIL-H); and atypical squamous cells, cannot exclude HSIL (ASC-H) during a 5-year period to evaluate the clinical significance of LSIL-H as a distinct cytological category.
