Bartholin’s gland is about 1 cm in size located in vulvar vestibule adjacent to the hymen. It opens into the introitus with an almost 2,5 cm length duct. The Bartholin’s duct obstruction can occur as a result of non-infectious occlusion of the ostium or from infection and edema compressing the duct. In this paper we present a patient admitted to our clinic with severe vulvar pain. Her gynecological examination revealed a painful firm necrotized mass which was 4 cm in diameter on the outer side of left minor labium. The mass was excised completely and the material was send to pathology for definitive diagnosis. Histopathological examination revealed Bartholin gland cyst. To our knowledge, there isn’t any case of heterotopically located bartholin cyst when the previous literature is reviewed up to now.
