The Action of Diethylstilbestrol in Gynecologycal Dysfunctions

Published: 01 April 1940 (that’s right, on April fools day).

Summary

Diethylstilbestrol when administered to women possessed the same physiological properties as do the hormonal estrogens. The therapeutic use of diethylstilbestrol is greatly limited because of the persistent nausea and occasional vomiting that was induced in more than one’half of the patients.
