Patients with a vaginal mass (large Bartholin's duct cyst) associated with a contralateral renal cyst and hydroureteronephrosis are unable to urinate. While occasionally seen in adults, Bartholin's duct cyst is rare in neonates. The origins of Bartholin's and Gartner's cysts can be traced to the mesonephric duct. Given the rarity of these cysts, there is significant confusion regarding their diagnosis, management, and prognosis. Here, we present the first report of an interlabial mass as a Bartholin's duct cyst in a neonate. The treatment of vaginal cysts is also discussed.
