PARAPAR, Indalecio e TABOADA, Noel. Surgical radical excision alone as a treatment for the giant condyloma acuminatum: a case report. Colomb. Med. [online]. 2007, vol.38, n.2, pp. 143-148. ISSN 1657-9534.
Condylomas or genital warts are caused by the human papilloma virus, from which exist more than 100 different genotypes. About 40 of them are sexually transmitted. We report a case of a female patient with a giant condyloma acuminatum in the vulvar perineal and perianal regions, of around five years of course, which disturbs her urination, sexual intercourse, and even walk; accompanied by pruritus, foul-smelling, and occasionally pain. The histopathological study was compatible with condyloma acuminatum. She was treated conservatively with radical local surgical excision of the tumor with excellent functional and cosmetic results. No postoperative complications were observed. A year later there were neither recurrences nor hypertrophic scars. We consider interesting to publish it due to its the first case published in the state of Eritrea, developing country of the horn of Africa.
