Beneath the papillary dysplasia, strands of invasive carcinoma can be detected Randall et al. 1986 Brinck et al. 2000 . Diagnosis of invasion, therefore, depends upon examining the entire papillary lesion. This papillary carcinoma of squamous cell type should not be...

A conization must also be performed if a previous punch biopsy of a grossly suspicious lesion showed that the noninvasive precancerous epithelium had not been completely excised.
