The case of a 41 year old patient with primary adenocarcinoma of bartholin's gland is reported. The adenocarcinoma was a cylindroma. A radical vulvectomy without post-operative radiation was performed. In the world literature around 200 cases of carcinoma of bartholin's gland are reported. The problems of diagnosis, microscopic classifications and adequate therapy and prognosis are discussed. Carcinoma of bartholin's gland is often recognized late. A cytologic smear for cancer in the treatment of inflammatory diseases of bartholin's gland is indicated. The five cases of carcinoma of bartholin's gland during pregnancy were treated by Caesarean section and thereafter radical vulvectomy. The left bartholin's gland is much more often the site, of the carcinoma that the right. Concomittant carcinoma of both bartholin's gland has as yet not been reported.
