lesion

injury or loss. In the civil law jurisdictions the word is often used in the context of an ‘unfair’ loss, as where an adult takes advantage of a minor or someone purchases something for much less than it's worth.

LESION, contracts. In the civil law this term is used to signify the injury suffered, in consequence of inequality of situation, by one who does not receive a full equivalent for what he gives in a commutative contract.
     2. The remedy given for this injury, is founded on its being the effect of implied error or imposition; for in every commutative contract, equivalents are supposed to be given and received. Louis. Code, 1854. Persons of full age, however, are not allowed in point of law to object to their agreements as being injurious, unless the injury be excessive. Poth. Oblig. P. 1, c. 1, s. 1, art. 3, Sec. 4. But minors are admitted to restitution, not only against any excessive inequality, but against any inequality whatever. Poth. Oblig. P. 1, c. 1, s. 1, art. 3, Sec. 5; Louis. Code, art. 1858.
     3. Courts of chancery relieve upon terms of redemption and set aside contracts entered into by expectant heirs dealing for their expectancies, on the ground of mere inadequacy of price. 1 Vern. 167; 2 Cox, 80; 2 Cas. in Ch. 136; 1 Vern. 141; 2 Vern. 121; 2 Freem. 111; 2 Vent. 359; 2 Vern. 14; 2 Rep. in Ch. 396; 1 P.

In women with CIN 1 who previously had HGSIL or AGC-NOS, three options are to be considered: 1) diagnostic excisional procedure, except in adolescents and pregnant women; 2) observation with colposcopy and cytology at six-month intervals for one year if the colposcopy is satisfactory and endocervical curettage is negative; and 3) review all findings and revise interpretation, if appropriate.
All the HGSILs in this study occurred in women younger than 30 years of age, which is much lower than the usual age distribution for high-grade lesions (around 35 - 40 years of age).
Follow-up colposcopies performed post partum indicated no change in the grade of lesions among 63% of the patients with HGSILs, 64% of patients with LGSILs, and 76% of the patients with ASCUS.
LGSIL indicates low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion; HGSIL, high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion; and TN score, expression of tenascin in the basement membrane.
The descriptor ASCUS refers to cells that are more abnormal than cells seen in reactive or inflammatory lesions, but do not fulfill all the criteria for LGSIL or HGSIL (Figure 4).
