Abstract

Introduction:: Tumors which originate from the Bartholin’s glands (BGs) are very rare. Many solid masses that arise from the BGs are carcinoma, though these benign solid lesions are rare.

Case Presentation:: To the best of the reporter’s knowledge, about 35 cases have been reported in the English literature so far, most of which accompanied with signs or symptoms of Bartholin’s duct cyst. In this paper we report a 43-year-old woman with bilateral solid masses in the BGs, incidentally detected during anterior-posterior colpoperineoplasty. The masses were then excised.

Discussion:: The histopathological examination showed increased number of acini with preserved duct-acinar connection, consistent with nodular hyperplasia. The patient had used oral contraceptive pill for four years.
