Chrobak sign

Chrobak sign

A near-extinct eponym for haemorrhage by mere touch (with a probe) of an eroded uterine cervix, which is regarded as typical of invasive cervical carcinoma—while this sign is widely recognised, use of the eponym is not. It was described by Rudolf Chrobak (1843–1910), an Austrian gynaecologist.
