Abstract

A 40-year-old woman underwent surgery to remove tender bilateral vulvar masses. The masses were gray/brown, well circumscribed, non-encapsulated, and were composed of an increased number of ducts and acini with a normal lobular architecture and a duct-acinar relationship. This appearance was consistent with Bartholin's gland hyperplasia (BGH). Bilateral Bartholin's gland cysts were also associated with BGH. Benign tumors and tumor-like conditions of Bartholin's gland are uncommon, and only a few cases of BGH have been reported in the literature. Hyperplasia is a rare etiology for an enlarged Bartholin's gland, and must be distinguished histologically from adenoma.
