Abstract

Although diethylstilbestrol has not been prescribed commonly for more than 25 years, its effects on the health of exposed persons are still important. In this article, we summarize current information about the major health effects of diethylstilbestrol exposure and delineate implications for nurses. Nurses can help to identify persons at risk from prior diethylstilbestrol exposure, facilitate comprehensive assessments of persons exposed to diethylstilbestrol, and share current information about diethylstilbestrol.
