Bartholin Bar·tho·lin (bär'tl-ĭn, -thə-lĭn), Caspar. 1585-1629.
Danish anatomist and physician who was the first to describe Bartholin's glands of the vagina.
They are called bartholin's glands; occasionally they become inflamed and give a good deal of trouble.
bartholin's management of squint-eyed people is founded on the same principles.
The glands of bartholin also begin to secrete in sexually immature girls, and even in children.
