Bartholin's gland carcinoma: a 15-year experience.

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.

A case of primary clear cell adenocarcinoma of Bartholin's gland

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.

Brain and lung metastasis of Bartholin’s gland adenoid cystic carcinoma: a case report

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.

Primary adenocarcinoma of the Bartholin gland: An extremely rare case report

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.

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.

Management of Bartholin's duct cyst and gland abscess.

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.

Difficulties of clinical and histopathological diagnosis in advanced vulvar clear cell carcinoma.

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.

Bartholin’s Gland Hyperplasia in a Young Woman

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.

Radical surgery is appropriate as standard primary therapy, whereas the role of radiation appears less clear in patients treated for primary carcinoma of the Bartholin gland.

Ovarian tumors in a cohort of infertile women.

Prolonged use of clomiphene may increase the risk of a borderline or invasive ovarian tumor in women evaluated for infertility between 1974 and 1985.

Primary Carcinoma of the Bartholin Gland: A Report of 14 Cases and Review of the Literature

Tumors of the Vulva

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.
