Skene gland adenitis - Anogenital in
Abscesses tend to be rare and usually occur in premenopausal women.
These infections tend to be polymicrobial in nature. Risk factors include poor vulvar hygiene, diabetes, pregnancy, and obesity.
While Skene gland cysts are usually asymptomatic, adenitis and abscesses can cause pain, dysuria, dyspareunia, and urinary retention. Patients will often complain of a feeling of a mass being present, of pain, or of issues with urination including recurrent urinary tract infections or pain with voiding.
