The impact of CO laser for treatment of Bartholin's gland cyst or abscess on female sexual function: a pilot study.

Gynecol Endocrinol 2018 Aug 22:1-5. Epub 2018 Aug 22.

a Department of Gynecological, Obstetrical and Urological Sciences , ' Sapienza' University of Rome , Rome , Italy.

The aim of this study is to evaluate the sexual functionality before and after treatment of Bartholin's gland diseases (BGD) with CO laser and to compare our results to patients who underwent surgical cold knife and to a healthy control group (HCG). Consecutive patients (n = 15) affected by BG cyst or abscess who underwent CO laser treatment were evaluated. Patients were asked to complete the Italian translation of the Female Sexual Functioning Index (FSFI) before and 4 weeks after treatment. Read More

A Case of Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma Mimicking a Bartholin Cyst and Literature Review.

Case Rep Obstet Gynecol 2018 26;2018:5256876. Epub 2018 Mar 26.

University of Queensland, Brisbane, QLD, Australia.

Adenoid cystic carcinoma of the Bartholin Gland (BG-ACC) is a rare form of vulval cancer with only approximately 350 reported cases since 1864. A review of available literature and case reports suggests an aggressive nature with protracted clinical symptoms and a tendency for local recurrence despite adequate surgical excision with or without adjuvant radiotherapy. Survival rates of 71% and 59% are reported at five and ten years. Read More

Bartholin Gland Carcinoma: Clinicopathologic Features, Including p16 Expression and Clinical Outcome.

Int J Gynecol Pathol 2018 Feb 5. Epub 2018 Feb 5.

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine (T.N., A.S.C., A.N.K., C.B.G.) Genetic Pathology Evaluation Centre (A.S.C.), University of British Columbia Division of Anatomical Pathology, Vancouver General Hospital (T.N., A.N.K., C.B.G.) Division of Medical Oncology, British Columbia Cancer Agency (A.T.), Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Bartholin gland carcinomas are rare forms of vulvar malignancy and it is unclear what proportion is associated with high-risk human papilloma virus (HPV) infection. Our hospital archives were searched for all cases of Bartholin gland carcinoma from 1984 to 2017 (n=16). We excluded 3 adenoid cystic carcinomas, which were the subject of a previous study, leaving 13 cases. Read More

Resection of the inferior pubic ramus to completely remove locally advance adenoid cystic carcinoma of Bartholin's gland.

Gynecol Oncol 2017 12 28;147(3):723-724. Epub 2017 Sep 28.

Department of Gynecology, Cancer Institute Hospital of Japanese Foundation for Cancer Research, Tokyo, Japan.

Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 2016 Apr 30;83:69-73. Epub 2016 Jan 30.

Department Family and Preventive Medicine, School of Medicine, University of Utah, UT, USA.

Objective: To evaluate ranula development according to anatomic variation of the ductal system of sublingual gland (SLG), especially the presence of Bartholin's duct.

Methods: The anatomic variation of SLG duct was prospectively investigated and compared between 55 consecutive patients with ranulas treated by SLG excision (group 1) and another 15 consecutive patients undergoing similar surgeries for other conditions (group 2). The ductal structures of SLGs and submandibular glands (SMG) were also compared between the pediatric patients and adult patients with ranulas. Read More

Interdisciplinary treatment of the patient with adenoid cystic carcinoma of the Bartholin's gland resulting in 15 years' survival: a case report and review of literature.

Prz Menopauzalny 2014 Oct 2;13(5):310-2. Epub 2014 Nov 2.

Department of General and Colorectal Surgery, Medical University of Lodz, Poland.

Carcinoma of the Bartholin's gland is very rare, comprises below 2% of Bartholin's gland lesions and adenoid cystic carcinoma (ADC) is one of the most uncommon variants and accounts for 10-15% of Bartholin's gland malignancies. There is no consensus on treatment of ADC of the Bartholin's gland: reported cases were treated with local excision or vulvectomy with or without lymphadenectomy followed or not by radiotherapy. The survival of patients varies significantly, so we present a case of interdisciplinary treatment of ADC resulting in 15 years' survival. Read More

Clinical Manifestations and Therapeutic Management of Vulvar Cellulitis and Abscess: Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Necrotizing Fasciitis, Bartholin Abscess, Crohn Disease of the Vulva, Hidradenitis Suppurativa.

Authors:
Sara C Wood

Clin Obstet Gynecol 2015 Sep;58(3):503-11

Mercy Hospital St. Louis, St. Louis, Missouri.

Infections of the vulva can present a complex differential to the gynecologist, ranging from superficial skin infections to life-threatening necrotizing fasciitis. Recognition and timely treatment remain universal to skin and soft-tissue infections as the subcutaneous anatomy of the vulva can facilitate rapid spread to other tissues with significant morbidity and mortality. Ineffective antibiotics or deferring necessary surgical debridement have proven to be costly to the patient, and the gynecologist must maintain an appropriately high index of suspicion. Read More

Recurrent sublingual ranula or saliva leakage from the submandibular gland? Anatomical consideration of the ductal system of the sublingual gland.

J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2015 Apr 22;73(4):675.e1-7. Epub 2014 Oct 22.

Assistant Professor, Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, The 3rd Affiliated Hospital of Anhui Medical University, Hefei, Anhui, China.

Purpose: Some believe that the recurrence of sublingual ranula results from incomplete removal of the sublingual gland (SLG), but recurrence remains in some patients who undergo repeated excision of the remnant SLG, and the final solution to the recurrence is to remove the ipsilateral submandibular gland (SMG). In the authors' experience, preoperative aspirate from a sublingual ranula was a thick mucus-like fluid resembling egg white, whereas that from recurrent cyst after removal of the SLG was thin serous fluid. Based on the difference of the aspirated fluids, the authors speculated that the recurrent cystic mass might not be a ranula, but rather iatrogenic saliva leakage from the SMG through the previous surgically damaged excretory duct of the SLG (Bartholin duct) that opens into the SMG duct (Wharton duct).

Carcinomas and sarcomas of Bartholin gland. A report of nine cases and review of the literature.

Eur J Gynaecol Oncol 2014 ;35(3):243-9

Unlabelled: The greater vestibular gland, also called Bartholin's gland after the Danish anatomist Caspar Bartholin the Younger who first described it in the 17th century, is the site of tumours arising from different types of epithelium and characterized by a different clinical course. In the years 1980-2009, 1,296 patients with vulvar carcinoma were treated at the Oncology Centre in Warsaw, Poland and nine of them had carcinoma of Bartholin's gland, including three patients with squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), three patients with adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) and three patients with sarcoma. In this paper the authors present the signs and symptoms, clinical course, treatment outcomes, and recurrence of these three malignant tumours of different histopathology. Read More

Several benign, premalignant, and malignant lesions may arise on the vulva, and multiple types of procedures may be used to diagnose and treat these conditions. Punch and shave biopsies may be used to diagnose most vulvar conditions, but lesions suspected of being melanomas may best be diagnosed with narrow-margin excisional biopsies. Bartholin gland cysts and abscesses may be treated with several different treatment modalities, the most common of which are fistulization and marsupialization. Read More
