  • Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia (CIN1, CIN2, CIN3) JAMA
    Dysplasia of the cervical epithelium, often premalignant (ie, cancerous), characterized by various degrees of hyperplasia, abnormal keratinization (forming horny epidermal tissue), and condylomata. Considerable evidence implicates human papilloma virus (HPV) in the development of CIN. Immunosuppression may also play an important role in facilitating infection or persistence of HPV in the genital tract and progression of HPV-induced neoplasia. See also Cervix; Condyloma; Dysplasia; Epithelium; Hyperplasia; Neoplasm.
  • Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia (CIN): SFAF
    abnormal growth of cells of the uterine cervix, suggesting an early stage of cervical cancer. Human papillomavirus (HPV) and HIV infection are associated with an increased risk of CIN. There are 3 grades of severity: CIN I, CIN II and CIN III. A newer classification system divides these 3 classes into 2 categories: low-grade and high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (SIL). See also cervical dysplasia, squamous intraepithelial lesion.
