A case of vulvar carcinoma arising from Bartholin's gland is described. At admission the patient showed a large suppurated swelling of the left labium maior. The neoformation reached the groin of the same side. Malignant cells were detected in biopsy specimens of both the vulvar swelling and the lymphonodes. The histological test showed a vulvar carcinoma arising from Bartholin's gland. The vulvar swelling and the ulcerated lesion were removed and the patient was treated with radiotherapy, chemotherapy (bleomicina) and immunomodulant therapy (Timostimoline). Pulmonary methastases were detected eighteen months after the operation and the patient died two years later.
