Title: Diethylstilbestrol (DES) Cervix
Description: The cockscomb, collar, and pseudopolyp of cervix. Cockscomb (hoods) are markedly enlarged folds of cervical stroma and epithelium. Low, broad folds are collars (rims). A pseudopolyp is that portion of the cervix which is medial to a constricting band (sulcus) and has on superficial examination the appearance of a polyp. However, the pseudopolyp is not a true polyp since the endocervical canal transverses through it.
