Özet

Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) of the Bartholin gland is an uncommon malignant gynecological tumor. Brain metastasis from a malignant gynecological lesion is encountered rarely and the prognosis for this type of metastasis is poor. Different treatment protocols, such as. resection, stereotactic radiosurgery, whole-brain radiation therapy (WBRT), and chemotherapy, are available and should be considered on an individual basis. In this article, the authors report a case of brain metastasis from an ACC of the Bartholin gland that was treated by resection and WBRT. A review of the literature did not reveal any other such case.
