With the help of this case we summarize some crucial features to be picked up from history and examination before labeling a case as Bartholin’s abscess or cyst. A 20 year old unmarried girl, deaf and mute since birth, was initially diagnosed to have Bartholin’s abscess.

Histopatholog y ascertained the diagnosis of vulval leiomyoma.
