With mucin stains, a faint positive reaction may be detected in the superficial cell layer which may include the flattened atrophic remnants of columnar cells that originally covered the reserve cells (Figs. 27, 28).

The ectropionized mucosa usually is overgrown by an ascending regenerative epithelium (Fig.
