Gartner's duct cysts

Quick Reference

Vaginal cysts, usually small, that arise from Gartner’s duct – remnants of the Wolffian duct (see mesonephros) in females. No treatment is necessary if the cysts are small and not symptomatic, but surgical marsupialization or excision may be required if they are large and cause obstruction. H. T.
