Bartholinitis is an inflammation of the Bartholin’s glands. Often, bartholinitis occurs suddenly, against the background of good health. Without timely and correct treatment, it can acquire a chronic course with periodic exacerbations. In most cases, bartholinitis is caused by a nonspecific microflora (Escherichia coli, streptococcus or staphylococcus). The disease is more common in young women aged 20-30. Sexually transmitted infections, including chlamydia and gonococcus, can also cause inflammation.
