The growths are usually pinkish and occur around the cervix, vulva, perineum, anus and anal canal, urethra, and glans penis. They are often treated with weekly applications of podophyllum resin, 10 to 25 per cent in tincture of benzoin or by application of trichloroacetic acid. Especially resistant warts or extensive involvement may require electrocautery, cryosurgery, or recombinant interferon alfa-2b or alfa-n3. Called also genital or venereal warts.

CONDYLOMA (PERIANAL WARTS)

condyloma acuminatum

A wart, typically found on the genitals, the perineum, the anus, or the mucosal surfaces of the vagina or mouth, usually spread by sexual contact. It is caused by various types of human papilloma virus and may be spread by physical contact with an area containing a wart. The spread of a wart from one labium to the other by autoinoculation is possible. The virus that causes the wart is usually transmitted sexually. Synonym: genital wart

Treatment

Topically applied liquid nitrogen, imiquimod cream, fluorouracil, or podophyllin may prove effective; multiple treatments are usually needed, including occasionally surgery, electrosurgery, or laser ablation. Extremely large lesions (Buschke-Lowenstein tumor) may need radical excision.
