Title: Diethylstilbestrol (DES) Cervix
Description: A vaginal adenosis. The glands in the lamina propria lined by tubo-endometrial type of epithelium are partly replaced by metaplastic squamous epithelium. The surface epithelium of the vagina is replaced by metaplastic squamous epithelium which is glycogen poor and therefore does not take up an iodine stain (H&E, x 42).
