CIN: The class system of paps has not been used in years. What matters is the pathology (ie, cin 1, 2, 3).

Pap Terminology: The class system is an old outdated classification system and should not be used. Most pap reports fall into one of a few categories; negative, atypical, low grade, high grade. Low and high grade lesions are almost always the result of hpv. Your pap sounds like a low grade abnormality that needs further follow up with colposcopy and biopsy.
