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.

"Low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion, cannot exclude high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion" is a distinct cytologic category: histologic outcomes and HPV prevalence.
The reasons for ordering the p16 staining were stated in 75 of the 120 reports reviewed; it was indicated as atrophy (n = 3), metaplasia (n = 8), atypical metaplasia (n = 21), inflammation with reactive/reparative changes (n = 9), small focus of abnormality and/or poor orientation (n = 13), distinction between CIN1 and CIN2 (n = 7), or discrepancy between the histologic preliminary diagnosis and a prior Pap test diagnosis of ASC-H, low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion, cannot exclude high grade (LSIL-H), or HSIL (n = 15).
More than half of the women (55%) had a record of low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (LSIL), which may develop into high-grade lesions and eventually result in cervical cancer.
