Gender: Female

The MRI sequences demonstrate a well-defined ovoid right vaginal soft tissue mass (40 x 37 x 35 mm) centered on the Bartholin gland, displacing the puborectalis laterally and anorectal region medially. It elicits a slight high signal on T1 and TI fat sat, intermediate to low signal on T2 with restricted diffusion and a homogeneous enhancement postcontrast sequences.
