Bartholin's duct

Bartholin's ducts are a pair of ducts leading from the Bartholin's glands to the surface of the vulva.

It is claimed that the two external openings of the Bartholin's ducts are often invisible to the naked human eye.

The major sublingual duct is also known as "Bartholin's duct." [WhoNamedIt|synd|3319|Bartholin's duct (Caspar Bartholin the Younger)]
