Bartholin's gland abscess is one of the common inflictions of vulva seen in females of reproductive age group with a recurrence rate of up to 38%. Although it's encountered by many Paediatric Surgeons, it's very rarely reported in prepubertal age. Till date, only six cases have been reported to the best of our knowledge. A seven-year-old female child presented with a recurrent labial abscess. She was found to have Bartholin's gland abscess and was treated with partial excision of cyst wall along with the overlying mucosa and drainage...

OBJECTIVE: Some sections of the pelvic bone can be removed without severe loss of function, including the inferior pubic ramus. Here we report a technique for the complete resection of locally advanced adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) of the Bartholin's gland that had invaded the obturator muscle and inferior pubic ramus. METHODS: We chose to operate because there was little evidence of definitive radiotherapy for ACC of the vulva. As preoperative imaging did not suggest lymph node metastasis, we omitted lymphadenectomy...

Nodular hyperplasia (NH) of the Bartholin gland is an exceedingly rare benign solid lesion of the female genital tract that can mimic the Bartholin gland cyst clinically. The histologic criteria for NH were established in 1998 by Koenig and Tavassoli. In this case series, we describe 4 cases of NH from Women and Infants Hospital in Rhode Island. All cases have microscopic features of lobular proliferation of acini and inspissated mucin. One case especially has extensive mucin extravasation mimicking an aggressive angiomyxoma...

Genital leiomyomas are rare tumors that can often be misdiagnosed as Bartholin cyst. We report a case of a 32-year-old patient who had a cystic nodulation in the left labium majus that was suggestive of Bartholin cyst. A resection surgery was performed, and the definitive histopathology diagnosis was vulvar leiomyoma. The macroscopic features of cystic lesions difficult the differential diagnosis between leiomyoma and Bartholin cyst; therefore, a histopathologic examination is often recommended.

Bartholin's gland cysts are one of the common vulval masses that may start as asymptomatic cysts but if left untreated, may become large and infected requiring medical attention. We are presenting two interesting and rare cases of giant Bartholin cyst and their treatment in this case report. Two female patients of perimenopausal age presented with giant vulval cysts to the outpatient department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. They reached a size of 10 cm and 20 cm diameter respectively, presenting with some diagnostic and later reconstruction of the labia majus...

A 37-year-old woman underwent surgery to remove bilateral vulvar masses. The masses were firm, non-tender, and immobile. Pathologic finding was a well-delineated creamy grayish mass with a homogenous grayish solid surface and mild edema, chronic inflammatory infiltration, and focal dilation of the ducts with squamous metaplasia. The diagnosis was hyperplastic and hypertrophied Bartholin's gland. Hyperplasia is a rare etiology for an enlarged Bartholin's gland. Clinical presentation of Bartholin's gland nodular hyperplasia is rather specific, although inflammatory lesion is the most common cause of swelling of the Bartholin's gland in all age groups...

Avoiding destruction by immune cells is a hallmark of cancer, yet how tumors ultimately evade control by natural killer (NK) cells remains incompletely defined. Using global transcriptomic and flow-cytometry analyses and genetically engineered mouse models, we identified the cytokine-TGF-β-signaling-dependent conversion of NK cells (CD49a(-)CD49b(+)Eomes(+)) into intermediate type 1 innate lymphoid cell (intILC1) (CD49a(+)CD49b(+)Eomes(+)) populations and ILC1 (CD49a(+)CD49b(-)Eomes(int)) populations in the tumor microenvironment...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Transforming growth factor beta (TGFβ) acts either as a tumor suppressor or as an oncogene, depending on the cellular context and time of activation. TGFβ activates the canonical SMAD pathway through its interaction with the serine/threonine kinase type I and II heterotetrameric receptors. Previous studies investigating TGFβ-mediated signaling in the pancreas relied either on loss-of-function approaches or on ligand overexpression, and its effects on acinar cells have so far remained elusive...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to determine the frequency, morphology, and attenuation characteristics of Bartholin cysts on multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) in asymptomatic women. METHODS: A total of 3280 consecutive MDCT examinations were assessed for Bartholin cysts. The diagnosis was based on shape, contrast enhancement, and anatomical location. Age, laterality, size, and attenuation patterns were recorded. Scans from patients with paravaginal-related symptoms were excluded, and any available follow-up MDCT scans or magnetic resonance images were evaluated...

The discovery of the lymphatic system has a long and fascinating history. The interest in anatomy and physiology of this system paralleled that of the blood cardiocirculatory system and has been maybe obscured by the latter. Paradoxically, if the closed blood system appeared open in Galen's anatomy and physiology, and took a very long time to be correctly described in terms of pulmonary and general circulation by ibn Al-Nafis/Michael Servetus/Realdo Colombo and William Harvey, respectively, the open lymphatic system was incorrectly described as a closed circuit connected with arteries and veins...

Aggressive angiomyxoma (AAM) is a rare mesenchymal tumor that usually occurs in the pelvis and perineum of young females. AAM can simulate Bartholin's gland cyst, abscess, lipoma, simple labial cyst, or other pelvic soft tissue tumors. Here we present five cases of AAM with mean age of 42. The patients mainly presented slow-growing mass in the abdomen and perineum (3 cases in the pelvis, 1 in the vulva, and 1 in the buttock). Color Doppler flow imaging revealed blood flow for the 3 pelvic lesions. Enhanced computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging of the other 2 cases showed the typical "swirled" or "layered" structure characteristic...

BACKGROUND: A ranula is a cystic lesion in the floor of the mouth, formed either as a retention cyst or pseudocyst as a result of extravasation of mucus in the surrounding tissue. It may be treated by micro-marsupialization, marsupialization or excision of lesion with or without the associated salivary gland. Marsupialization is usually achieved by cutting a slit and thereafter stitching the edges such that the epithelium of the exterior becomes continuous with that of the interior of a cyst...
