This study examines Prolactin and Androgen concentrations in 15 women with a Bartholin's gland abscess and in 15 matched normal controls. The Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate concentrations were higher in the Bartholin's abscess group as compared to the concentrations in the control group [7.0 ± 3.1 mmol/l versus 4.3 ± 1.3 mmol/l (p < 0.05), respectively]. The Prolactin and the Testosterone levels did not differ statistically between the two groups.
- Bartholin's gland abscess
