Bartholin’s gland is about 1 cm in size located in vulvar vestibule adjacent
to the hymen. It opens into the introitus with an almost 2,5 cm
length duct. The Bartholin’s duct obstruction can occur as a result of
non-infectious occlusion of the ostium or from infection and edema
compressing the duct. In this paper we present a patient admitted
to our clinic with severe vulvar pain. Her gynecological examination
revealed a painful firm necrotized mass which was 4 cm in diameter
on the outer side of left minor labium. The mass was excised completely
and the material was send to pathology for definitive diagnosis.
Histopathological examination revealed Bartholin gland cyst. To our
knowledge, there isn’t any case of heterotopically located bartholin
cyst when the previous literature is reviewed up to now.
