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.

A contract cannot stand where the party has availed himself of a confidential situation, in order to obtain some selfish advantage. Note to Crowe v. Ballard. 1 Ves. jun. 125; 1 Hov. Supp. 66, 7.

If cytology at this first year of follow-up of the original ASC-US or LGSIL is HGSIL or greater, colposcopy should be done.

The phase II study was done at about 19 centers, where more than 300 women were screened after being flagged as having LGSIL by a routine Pap smear.
Colposcopies performed on all the women during pregnancy confirmed the presence of high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (HGSILs) in 30 patients, low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (LGSILs) in 53 patients, and atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (ASCUS) in 17 patients.
For LGSIL cytologic results, only 6.7% are found to have severe dysplasia.
(*) LGSIL indicates low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion; HGSIL, high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion; and TN score, expression of tenascin in the basement membrane.
For squamous lesions, the descriptors are atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (ASCUS), low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (LGSIL), high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (HGSIL), and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC).

To evaluate the reliability of using repeat cervical smears to separate patients with high-grade SIL (HGSIL) from those with low-grade SIL (LGSIL), calculations were repeated, with both repeat cytologic and biopsy LGSIL results included in the "negative" group.
