CAMPANER, Adriana Bittencourt; GALVAO, Maria Antonieta Longo; SANTOS, Roberto Euzébio dos  e  AOKI, Tsutomu. Atypical glandular cells in cervical smears: significance and current aspects. J. Bras. Patol. Med. Lab. [online]. 2007, vol.43, n.1, pp.37-43. ISSN 1678-4774.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S1676-24442007000100008.

Atypical glandular cells (AGC) on cervical smears are unusual but important cytologic diagnosis. The incidence of AGC ranges from 0.08% to 0.81 % of all cervical smears tests. The 2001 Bethesda System nomenclature classifies these glandular lesions as AGC not otherwise specified, AGC favor neoplasia, endocervical adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS) and invasive adenocarcinoma. Of women with AGC smears, a great number will have no histologic abnormalities on further evaluation. However, 17.4% to 62.2% are found to have significant histologic lesions such as cervical intraepithelial neoplasia, AIS, squamous and glandular cancers from sites farther the cervix and endometrium. The risk of significant disease is related to the AGC subclassification that was found. Because of the high likelihood that AGC is associated with significant histological disease, simply repeating the cytological smear is not sufficient for the management of this condition. This review describes the epidemiology, evaluation and management of patients with these citologic readings.
