Abstract
We report a case of squamous cell carcinoma of Bartholin's gland for the first time in Korea. The patient had diagnosed unexpectedly by an incidental Rt. Bartholin's cystectomy at Chunchon Sacred Heart Hospital. She was transferred to Asan Medical Center and performed Rt. hemivulvectomy with ipsilateral inguinal-femoral lymph node dissection for staging. She was FIGO stage II (T2N0M0) and has been followed up for 9 months without any evidence of recurrence. Squamous cell carcinoma of Bartholin's gland is very rare among the female genital malignancies. The treatment of this malignancy is not established yet. So it should be individualized to the patient by the resectability and the status of resection margin involvement.
Key Words: Bartholin's gland, Squamous cell carcinoma
