A member asked:

Can you get sepsis from a infected bartholin cyst?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Sepsis ?: True sepsis is an unusual complication of an "infected Bartholin's cyst". Generally speaking, the cyst is isolated and causes pain which results in drainage of the cyst and/or a surgical procedure to remove the cyst. The diagnosis of sepsis would include a drop in blood pressure, rapid breathing and heart rate, elevated white blood cells and elevated lactic acid and temperature. Rare for this.
