  • Perineal infections are a common presenting complaint in women attending acutely to a gynaecology department. Specifically, Bartholin's abscesses can occur in approximately 2% of women. Conservative versus surgical approaches to manage these infections aims to reduce the need for hospital admission. We summarise the literature on the diagnosis and management of Bartholin's and other types of perineal infections and abscesses specific to gynaecology.
