examination. ACUTE ENDOCERVITIS. Acute endocervicitis is acute
inflammation of the lining of that portion of the uterine canal
lying between the external and internal os. It is sometimes called
"acute cervical endometritis" and "cervical metritis." Etiology and
Pathology. Acute endocervicitis is due to infection with the
gonococcus or with ordinary pus germs. In gonorrhoeal vaginitis,
the inflammation frequently extends into the cervix and may remain
in check there for sometime. If in a case of gonorrhoeal vaginitis
applications are made within a healthy cervix, gonorrhoeal
endocervicitis is likely to result. Some authorities hold that
gonorrhoeal endocervicitis is usually the primary lesion and that
the vagina is infected from these. This probably takes place in
some cases but it is hardly to be considered the rule. Ordinary
septic endocervicitis may follow labor or abortion, but then it is
usually overshadowed by the more serious inflammation in the body
of the uterus, i. e., the septic endometritis. The pathological
changes are practically the same whether the inflammation be
ordinary septic or gonorrhoeal, except that the former is usually
accompanied by mechanical injuries (cervical lacerations). The
changes are hyperemia and swelling of the mucosa, serous
infiltration and round-cell infiltration (leucocyte and
lymphocyte), with increased secretion. Symptoms and Diagnosis. The
principal symptom of acute endocervicitis is increased discharge
from the cervix with irritation resulting therefrom (Figs. 436,
437). The cervical secretion is tenacious and stringy and resembles
the white of an egg except that it is less fluid and more
jelly-like. The normal cervical secretion is alkaline....
