Follow-up: Rapid rate of metaplastic change within the transformation zone is a significant risk factor for the development of low grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (LSIL). This is often caused by an HPV infection that often goes away on its own. However because the transformation zone of the cervical epithelium is recognized as the site of origin of precarcinoma & carcinoma this should be followed.
