Endocervicitis is an inflammation of the mucosa of the cervical canal. Usually the patient complain of considerable leucorrhea. Lacerations of the cervix uteri, unsutured after childbirth, eversions of the cervix, its ruptures during abortions, and the appearance of polyps from the interior of the cervical canal are factors favouring the development of this disease. Inflammation of the mucosa of the cervical canal with constant discharges leads to formation of ulcers in the region of the external os so called erosion. Sometimes small blisterlike structures obstructing the glands of the mucosa are observed on an isolated part of the cervical os; these are nabothian cysts or ovules (ovula nabothi).
