Objective Studies on the development of the embryological and fetal development of the cervix and the vagina are rare and mostly go back to the first decades of the last century. The aims of this review were to present the latest knowledge concerning the developmental origin of cervical and vaginal epithelium and to point out new results in the context of different clinical findings. Materials and Methods Relevant studies published between 1910 and 2013 were identified via PubMed, MEDLINE, OVID… Expand
Development of the Uterine Cervix and Its Implications for the Pathogenesis of Cervical Cancer
TLDR
The development of the human lower female reproductive tract, in particular the cervical squamocolumnar junction, is described and its implications for the pathogenesis of cervical cancer are described. Expand
Differences Between Squamous Intraepithelial Lesions of the Vulva and the Cervix
TLDR
Differences between high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion of the vulva and cervix are described and it is believed that failure to understand these important differences will lead to errors in management. Expand
New insights into human female reproductive tract development.
TLDR
The development of the human vagina is far more complex than previously envisioned and appears to be distinctly different in many respects from mouse vaginal development. Expand
100 years of iodine testing of the cervix: A critical review and implications for the future.
  • O. Reich, H. Pickel
  • Medicine
  • European journal of obstetrics, gynecology, and reproductive biology
  • 2021
TLDR
The history of iodine testing of the cervix is described to describe and identify areas where further work is required and what problems and upcoming tasks will arise in future. Expand
Development of the human female reproductive tract.
TLDR
Development of the human female reproductive tract is reviewed from the ambisexual stage to advanced development of the uterine tube, uterine corpus, uterusine cervix and vagina at 22 weeks, with a focus on Müllerian ducts. Expand
Defining the Cervical Transformation Zone and Squamocolumnar Junction: Can We Reach a Common Colposcopic and Histologic Definition?
TLDR
An attempt to standardize colposcopic and histologic definitions among colposcopists and pathologists of the cervical transformation zone and the squamocolumnar junction. Expand
Benign intestinal glandular lesions in the vagina: a possible correlation with implantation
TLDR
Three unusual cases of benign intestinal-type glandular lesions in the vagina including two rectal mucosal prolapse-like polyps and one case of intestinal- type adenosis are reported, and possibilities for their histogenetic basis are discussed. Expand
Malignant transformation of vaginal adenosis to clear cell carcinoma without prenatal diethylstilbestrol exposure: a case report and literature review
TLDR
Based on the evolution of a series of pathological evidence, this is the fourth case in the world of vaginal clear cell carcinoma originating from vaginal adenosis without prenatal DES exposure and wide local excision with radiotherapy provided at least 16 months of disease-free survival. Expand
Cervix: Cell Biology
TLDR
This section describes the development and function of the cervix from the perspective of cellular and molecular biology. Expand
Recommended standardized terminology of the anterior female pelvis based on a structured medical literature review
TLDR
Standardized terminology that should be used when discussing anatomic structures in the anterior female pelvis is proposed to help improve communication among researchers, clinicians, and surgeons. Expand

The embryologic development of the human vagina.
TLDR
It is concluded that the development of the human vagina is best explained by the theory which holds that the Müllerian ducts in fetal life extend caudally to the level of the future hymen. Expand
Vaginal Agenesis and the Embryology of Vaginal Epithelium
TLDR
It is considered that a convincing case is yet to be made to reverse the traditional teaching on the embryology of the vagina on the basis of biopsies taken from the vaginal walls in the side that had the haematocolpos. Expand

TLDR
The mouse Mullerian epithelium has proved to be very valuable for studying many basic aspects of cellular differentiation problems; it may also contribute to elucidation of epithelial changes in the human cervix uteri. Expand
Experimental contributions to the study of the embryology of the vagina.
TLDR
It is proved the participation of Müller tubercle and Wolffian ducts in the formation of the vagina in rats, so Acién's hypothesis about the human vagina embryology is confirmed. Expand
Development of epithelial and mesenchymal regionalization of the human fetal utero‐vaginal anlagen
TLDR
Prenatal findings in human specimens clearly show that fornix epithelium up to the squamo‐columnar junction is of vaginal Müllerian origin, and the cervical epithelio‐mesenchymal cranial to the Squamo‐ columnar junction was clearly detectable from week 24 onwards and was always found in the cervical canal. Expand
Uroplakin and androgen receptor expression in the human fetal genital tract: insights into the development of the vagina.
TLDR
Since testosterone inhibits formation of the lower vagina, the timing of exposure to systemic testosterone in congenital adrenal hyperplasia will determine the phenotypic appearance of the external genitalia and effect of testosterone on the development of theLower genital tract. Expand
Ontogenetic anatomy of the distal vagina: relevance for local tumor spread and implications for cancer surgery.
TLDR
The pattern of local tumor permeation of lower genital tract cancer in the distal vagina can be consistently explained with ontogenetic anatomy and the compartment theory. Expand
Development of the vagina in the human fetus.
TLDR
Investigation into the successive stages of the vaginas developmental events suggest that a caudocranial process occurs in which epithelial cells in the center of the solid cord undergo involution desquamate and are discharged in part of the hymenal opening thus forming the vaginal canal. Expand

TLDR
Investigation into the successive stages of the vagina's developmental events suggest that a caudocranial process occurs in which epithelial cells in the center of the solid cord undergo involution, desquamate and are discharged in part of the hymenal opening thus forming the vaginal canal. Expand

TLDR
Adult mouse vaginal epithelium is derived solely from Müllerian duct epithelial, which was defined as the proportion of the sinus vagina of urogenital sinus origin reduced as the Müllersian vagina grew caudally. Expand
