Objective To assess the risk of Bartholin gland carcinoma in postmenopausal women. Methods A referral patient population from a tertiary care cancer center and a hospital-based regional tumor registry was used in a case-control and retrospective cohort study. We searched for data on any discharge diagnosis or procedures involving the Bartholin gland, including excision, cystectomy, or marsupialization, and pathology reports confiming cancer diagnoses from a hospital-based regional tumor… Expand
Bartholin gland cancer.
TLDR
To better understand and treat this disease, centralization to referral centers and design of multi institutional trials is crucial and adenocarcinoma histotype and positive lymph node were statistical correlated with worse prognosis. Expand
Bartholin's gland carcinoma: a 15-year experience.
TLDR
Conventional therapy for Bartholin's gland carcinoma yielded a 67% 5-year survival and seventy-one percent of women receiving adjuvant radiotherapy recurred despite this precaution, work is needed to identify an effective systemic therapy and to better determine which patients may benefit from pelvic radiotherapy. Expand
A case of primary clear cell adenocarcinoma of Bartholin's gland
TLDR
Primary clear cell adenocarcinoma of Bartholin’s gland has hitherto been unreported, and as there are clinical implications with this rare diagnosis, it is important to present this case. Expand
Brain and lung metastasis of Bartholin’s gland adenoid cystic carcinoma: a case report
TLDR
A 48-year-old premenopausal woman of Caucasian origin delivered adjuvant pelvic and inguinal radiotherapy after prior complete left Bartholin’s gland tumor excision and ingUinal lymph node dissection for adenoid cystic carcinoma of Bartholin's gland with one metastatic inguinals node died. Expand
Incidental Bartholin Gland Cysts Identified on Pelvic Magnetic Resonance Imaging
TLDR
The prevalence of Bartholin gland cysts in asymptomatic women serving as control participants who underwent pelvic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as part of research studies was estimated to be 3%, which is 3% of adult women. Expand
Primary adenocarcinoma of the Bartholin gland: An extremely rare case report
TLDR
It is important for clinicians to be aware of its rarity and to consider it in the differential diagnosis of unilateral solid–cystic ovarian mass in young women and the role of histopathology in correct diagnosis. Expand

TLDR
This case is the first reported case of vulval leiomyosarcoma in a patient with lichen sclerosus and the role of lymphadenectomy is questionable, as these tumours tend to recur locally or metastasize by the bloodstream to distant sites. Expand
Management of Bartholin's duct cyst and gland abscess.
TLDR
Managing Bartholin's duct cysts and gland abscesses in menopausal or perimenopausal women is to preserve the gland and its function if possible, and broad-spectrum antibiotic therapy is warranted only when cellulitis is present. Expand
Difficulties of clinical and histopathological diagnosis in advanced vulvar clear cell carcinoma.
TLDR
Given the clinical, imagistic, histological and immunohistochemical features of the tumor, it is concluded that the tumor is a CCC of the Bartholin gland, an extremely rare diagnosis with, to the authors' knowledge, only two other cases reported in literature, but with a potential aggressive clinical behavior and poor outcome. Expand
Bartholin’s Gland Hyperplasia in a Young Woman
TLDR
Bartholin’s gland hyperplasia may be a cause of swelling in the gland area and dyspareunia and it is recommended that whenever the gland feels firm or enlarged, total excision be considered, rather than drainage. Expand

Tumors of the Vulva
TLDR
This paper focuses on tumors of the vulva, and the identification of these lesions and the subsequent detection of malignancy in its eariy stages is contingent upon the ciinician's familiarity with these lesions, his or her index of suspicion, and most important, the free use of office biopsy procedures.
