Bartholin's gland abscess is a condition requiring emergency consultation. Placement of a Word catheter, which is a minor technique used in France as a treatment of bartholin's Abscess, can be done in an emergency room without hospitalization. Actually, incision-drainage, which is the most widespread treatment in France, is performed on day surgery with or without overnight hospitalization. Our hypothesis is that the use of Word catheter compared to incision-drainage would not modify the quality of life of the patients but would allow a saving of up to 3 M€ per year in France.
