Abstract

This study reports results of 52 patients with Bartholin abscesses or cysts who were managed by silver nitrate stick insertion into the cyst or abscess cavity for 48 hours. All patients showed complete healing within 15 days. However, 2 (3.8%) had recurrences within the first 2 months; 1 of these patients was treated with excision and the other by repetition of the same method with no further complaints. Silver nitrate application for Bartholin cysts or abscesses was found to be an effective, simple, inexpensive and the least anaesthetic requiring procedure, which can easily be carried out in the outpatient setting.
