Abstract
We report a case of endometriosis infiltrating the Bartholin gland. The initial diagnosis was a Bartholin gland cyst. The diagnosis was made during the operation when chocolate-colored fluid poured into operation field. The presence of endometriosis may be considered as a diagnosis in cases with cystic mass in the Bartholin gland. It’s a rare case. Indeed, only few cases are reported in the literature.
