Abstract

Introduction: Adenoid cystic carcinoma of the Bartholin's gland accounts for a minority of all Bartholin's gland malignancies. Although local recurrences commonly occur distant metastasis is rare. Case report: We present the first reported case of Adenoid cystic carcinoma of the Bartholin's gland with metastasis to the liver. Discussion: There is no consensus on the treatment of adenoid cystic carcinoma of the Bartholin's gland. Wide local excision and/or vulvectomy and radiotherapy are advocated for treatment of this cancer. There is not much data on treatment of metastasis and it varies according to site.
