ABSTRACT
Bartholin gland carcinomas (BGCs) are extremely rare tumors accounting for <1% of all female genital malignancies. The current study presents a 49-year-old female with an eight-year history of BGC. A mass was identified in the vulva and the patient underwent an excisional biopsy, which revealed a left Bartholin adenoid cystic carcinoma. The patient subsequently received surgery, chemotherapy and biological therapy, and has survived. Therefore, the present case indicates that surgery is important for the treatment of BGC, however; multimodal therapy may be a more effective treatment strategy.
