Mazdak Momeni, Yelena Korotkaya, Gonzalo Carrasco, Monica Prasad-Hayes



primary adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) of Bartholin’s gland is a rare gynecologic malignancy. We report a case of locally advanced ACC of Bartholin’s gland. A 62-year-old presented with left Bartholin’s gland carcinoma and underwent left radical vulvectomy,left-sided inguinal-femoral lymph node dissection, posterior pelvic exenteration, and pedicle abdominal muscle flap. On her 3 months follow-up exam she was disease free.Pelvic exenteration for thetreatment of this rare disease in the vulva is a potential curative option.#######
