Bartholin’S Cysts

(Bartholin gland cyst)

Bartholin’s cysts are filled with mucus and develop the right or left of the Introit. They represent the most common Vulvazysten. Large cysts can cause Vulvabeschwerden, dyspareunia, pain during walking and asymmetry of the vulva. They can also form abscesses, which are painful and usually red. The diagnosis is made because of the physical examination. Large cysts and abscesses require drainage and occasionally excision; in abscesses, administration of antibiotics is necessary.

The Bartholin’s glands are round, very small, not palpable and the very posterolateral vaginal introitus. If the duct is installed, the gland fills bulging with mucus, creating a cyst is formed. The cause of duct obstruction is usually unknown. In rare cases, the cyst by a sexually transmitted disease (z. B. gonorrhea) is caused.

The cause of duct obstruction is usually unknown. In rare cases, the cyst by a sexually transmitted disease (z. B. gonorrhea) is caused. These cysts develop in about 2% of women, usually aged 20-30 years. With increasing age, the probability of the development of cysts decreases. The cyst may ignite and form an abscess. Methicillin-resistant entener Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is becoming more common for such infections (and vulvar other infections). Vulvar cancer rarely go of Bartholin’s glands (vulva). Symptoms and complaints The cysts are mostly asymptomatic, although large cysts cause irritation and can impede sexual intercourse and walking. Most cysts are not pressure sensitive, one-sided and palpable near the vaginal orifice. A cyst distorted the affected large labia and thereby leads to an asymmetry of the vulva.
