Adenoid cystic carcinoma of the Bartholin's gland: report of two cases and review of the literature.
Gynecol Oncol. 2006 Feb; 100(2):422-5.GO

Abstract

BACKGROUND

Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) of the Bartholin's gland is a rare malignancy of the female genital tract and there have been 62 cases of ACC of the Bartholin's gland in the literature.

CASES

Two cases of ACC of the Bartholin's gland are reported.

CONCLUSION

There is no consensus on optimal treatment of ACC of the Bartholin's gland. Most commonly, wide local excision and radical vulvectomy with or without lymph node dissection, are performed. More long-term follow up is recommended to evaluate optimal primary treatment and roles of radiotherapy and chemotherapy because ACC of the Bartholin's gland recurs and metastasizes long after primary treatment.
