The Lower Anogenital Squamous Terminology Standardization Project for HPV-Associated Lesions: Background and Consensus Recommendations From the College of American Pathologists and the American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology: Erratum

Free Access

In the article, “The Lower Anogenital Squamous Terminology Standardization Project for HPV-Associated Lesions: Background and Consensus Recommendations From the College of American Pathologists and the American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology,” published in the Journal of Lower Genital Tract Disease, volume 16 issue 3, a typographical error may lead to some misunderstanding.

Under the Additional Findings from WG4, second paragraph, the section reads:

A positive p16 stain does exclude CIN 1; at least 30% of adjudicated CIN 1 cases are p16-positive. At present, no recommendation could be made for or against the use of p16 for this purpose. Hence, p16 should not be used to initially assess biopsies that, on H&E alone, would otherwise be interpreted as morphologically negative or CIN 1.

The corrected version should read as follows, with omitted word “not” inserted:

A positive p16 stain does not exclude CIN 1; at least 30% of adjudicated CIN 1 cases are p16-positive. At present, no recommendation could be made for or against the use of p16 for this purpose. Hence, p16 should not be used to initially assess biopsies that, on H&E alone, would otherwise be interpreted as morphologically negative or CIN 1.
