1999 Report Abstract

Typical changes in the cervix are described in three women following in utero exposure to diethylstilbestrol. It is important that these changes are recognised on colposcopy and appropriate follow-up colposcopy arranged. In the absence or cervical intraepithelial neoplasia, local destructive therapy is not indicated as this may be associated with cervical stenosis.
