D Endocervix

Endocervix

1. Gonococcal infection in the female-involves the endocervix urethra rectum and pharynx, in decreasing order of frequency.

2. Endocervical inflammation produces mucopurulent (yellow) endocervical discharge, which may result in a yellow vaginal discharge, and causes easily induced cervical bleeding.

3. Upward extension of infection from the endocervix to the fallopian tubes occurs in at least 15% of women with gonorrhea.

4. This extension tends to come soon after the acquisition of infection or during menstruation and results in acute endometritis with abnormal menstrual bleeding, midline low-abdominal pain and tenderness, and dyspareunia followed by acute salpingitis.
