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.

Giant condylomas are HPV-driven lesions and are known to undergo malignant transformation to squamous cell carcinoma.
Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues included 56 anorectal biopsy or surgical resection specimens with the following tissue diagnoses: 29 low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (encompasses condyloma, mild dysplasia, and anal intraepithelial lesion 1), 15 high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (encompasses moderate dysplasia, anal intraepithelial lesion 2, severe dysplasia, anal intraepithelial lesion 3, and carcinoma in situ), and 12 invasive squamous cell carcinoma.
HR-HPV types (HPV 16, 18, 31, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 56, 59, 66, 68, 69 and 73) are often associated with high grade lesions and invasive cancer, whereas the LR-HPV types (HPV 6, 11, 40, 42, 43, 44, 54, 61, 70, 72, 81, CP6108) are mainly found in low grade lesions, genital or skin warts and condyloma accuminata.
In the WIHS study published this year, risk factors for condylomas identified among HIV-positive women were cytologic abnormalities, HPV, smoking, no HAART (highly active antiretroviral therapy), and a low CD4 count, Dr.
The so-called low grade cervical lesions, that is CIN 1 and flat condyloma (soft, wartlike growths), also carry HPV sequences, however, many of the types identified have been the "low risk" viruses, most commonly 6 and 11 (Kurman, 1994; Lungu et al.

He advised caution about the diagnosis of VAIN-1, "A lot of us are trying not to make low-grade diagnoses of VIN or VAIN," and instead, "classify the majority of these lesions as flat condylomas, because the natural history of these low-grade lesions is not really well characterized," Dr.
