Bartholin

(bär`tōlēn), renowned Scandinavian family. Kaspar Bartholin, 1585–1629, b. Sweden, was a Danish physician. He was professor of medicine and later of theology at the Univ. of Copenhagen and author of a textbook of anatomy, Institutiones anatomicae (1611). His son, Thomas Bartholin, 1616–80, physician, naturalist, and philologist, was professor of mathematics and of anatomy at the Univ. of Copenhagen. He was the first to describe the entire lymphatic system. Kaspar Bartholin, 1655–1738, a son of Thomas Bartholin, also a professor at the Univ. of Copenhagen, is credited with discovering the glands of Bartholin (a pair of glands of the vagina) and an accessory duct of the sublingual salivary gland.

The pathogenesis of Bartholin's gland abscess starts slowly as the progressive swelling of the labia majora which later becomes painful, and finally it is accompanied by fever and massive swelling of the genital vulva on the affected side [1].
Neoplastic myoepithelial cell tumors can be found in nearly all exocrine gland tissues such as skin, soft tissue, sweat glands, breast, lacrimal glands, Bartholin's glands, nasal septum, nasopharynx, larynx, trachea, lung, esophagus, retroperitoneum, and prostate gland.
The histologic differential diagnosis of this case should include other types of vulva adenocarcinomas, such as adenocarcinoma of mammary gland type, adenocarcinoma of sweat gland type, and Bartholin gland carcinoma.
