A vestibular adenoma arising in mucin-secreting glands of the vulva is described. Grossly, the adenoma was a firm, well-demarcated solid mass with mucoid cut surface, measuring 3.5x3x3 cm, which was associated with an adjacent Bartholin's duct cyst. Microscopically, the solid mass was composed of proliferated mucous acini separted by fibromuscular septa and ducts lined by mucin-secreting columnar epithelium, transitional epithelium or metaplastic squamous epithelium. To our knowledge, less than 20 cases of such cases have been reported in the English literatures. However, whether the nature of proliferation is neoplastic or non-tumorous is still unclear.
