Cytologic diagnosis of primary adenocarcinoma of Bartholin's gland. A case report.
Acta Cytol. 1992 Mar-Apr; 36(2):167-70.AC

Abstract

The cytologic and histologic findings in an extremely rare case of adenocarcinoma of Bartholin's gland are described. The tumor cells in scraping and fine needle aspiration smears were in clusters. The nuclei were oval to oblong, and some cells had a peripherally displaced nucleus. The chromatinic material was slightly increased, and some nuclei had prominent nucleoli. The cytoplasm was basophilic and abundant. Microcalcifications and psammoma bodies were numerous. The tentative diagnosis was primary adenocarcinoma of Bartholin's gland, based on the cytologic findings and location of the tumor. Similar findings were noted in the biopsy and surgical specimens.
