Dysplasia - Microscopic Changes

Microscopic Changes

Dysplasia is characterised by four major pathological microscopic changes:

  1. Anisocytosis (cells of unequal size)
  2. Poikilocytosis (abnormally shaped cells)
  3. Hyperchromatism (excessive pigmentation)
  4. Presence of mitotic figures (an unusual number of cells which are currently dividing).

Famous quotes containing the word microscopic:

    The television screen, so unlike the movie screen, sharply reduced human beings, revealed them as small, trivial, flat, in two banal dimensions, drained of color. Wasn’t there something reassuring about it!—that human beings were in fact merely images of a kind registered in one another’s eyes and brains, phenomena composed of microscopic flickering dots like atoms. They were atoms—nothing more. A quick switch of the dial and they disappeared and who could lament the loss?
    Joyce Carol Oates (b. 1938)
