In places it looked as if it had been scraped out. It was everywhere hard. On section, the cervical walls were found to be infiltrated by a yellowishwhite, rather dry tissue. This infiltration ended at the internal os. Kaufmann immediately suspected carcinoma of the cervix, and from the picture accompanying his article one would undoubtedly favour this diagnosis.
