Caption: Bartholin's abscess. View of a woman's vulva showing abscess formation (red) near the site of Bartholin's glands. A pair of Bartholin's glands open into the vulva, and these secrete a fluid that help to lubricate the vagina. Infection of one of Bartholin's glands may cause a swelling at the duct opening, or produce an abscess. This may require a surgical procedure to drain the gland, or otherwise the gland may need to be removed if abscesses recur. Removal of one or both of Bartholin's glands does not seriously affect vaginal or vulval lubrication.
