Cervical Cells

Cervical cells are screened anually to detect HPV, or vaginitis. Pap smear mirrors various layers of the epithelium. These so-called glands are actually not true glands but deep, cleft-like infoldings of the surface epithelium with numerous blind, tunnel-like collaterals. The endocervix is covered by mucin-secreting, simple columnar epithelium, which lines the surface and the underlying glands. Cervical cells are screened anually to detect HPV, or vaginitis.

Cervical Cells

  -  

HPV, Vaginitis

The ectocervix is lined by nonkeratinizing stratified squamous epithelium, which is composed of several layers divided into basal, parabasal, intermediate and superficial. The stroma contains a mixture of smooth muscle and fibrous and elastic tissues. The cervix is made up different kinds of tissues: epithelium and underlying stroma. Cervical cells are screened anually to detect HPV, or vaginitis.
