The finding of cervix as shown in the picture below represents ?
A. Strawberry cervix.
B. Associated with Trichomonas infections.
C. Cervix has papilliform appearance.
D. All of the above.
A strawberry cervix is a finding upon examination where the cervix has a punctate and papilliform appearance. It is named because of the superficial appearance to a strawberry.
As opposed to a more general inflammation of the cervix found in cervicitis, the strawberry cervix is considered to be selectively associated with Trichomonas infections.
Only 2% of women with the infection will have a “strawberry” cervix or vagina on examination.This is due to capillary dilation as a result of the inflammatory response.
