Bartholin's cyst: marsupialization or aspiration?

D R Cheetham
American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology 1985 July 1, 152 (5): 569-70
Of 34 patients with bartholinitis, two thirds had abscesses and one third had cysts. Aspiration provided not only relief but also material for bacteriologic culture. Ninety-five percent of the abscesses, half of them caused by gonorrhea, could be treated with penicillin and metronidazole. Cysts were not treated with chemotherapy. Cure rate was 85%.
