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


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.


condyloma latum

A mucous patch, characteristic of syphilis, most often on the vulva or anus. It is flat, coated with gray exudate and has a delimited area.
Synonym: moist papule

The lesion begins as a condylomatous lesion which eventually ulcerates and develops sinuses that exhibit foul-smelling keratinous material.
The differential diagnoses for carcinoma cuniculatum of the penis include classic verrucous carcinoma, mixed verrucous carcinoma and condylomatous carcinoma.
We also recommended that the infectologist start ART prior to surgical removal of the perianal condylomatous plaque.
Some authors use alternative terms such as non condylomatous cervical wart virus infection or subclinical papilloma virus infection.
Basaloid and warty (condylomatous) or classic subtypes of VIN are associated with relatively younger women, and evidence of human papillomavirus (HPV) nucleic acids.
Some have answered this question by advocating the treatment of any condylomatous atypia with an ablative procedure, along with attempts to eradicate clinically significant disease in the woman and her partner or partners.
For pathologic diagnosis, those lesions with typical condylomatous features as described above may be diagnosed as "condyloma acuminatum," whereas those that also have conventional histologic evidence of low-grade dysplasia (ie, atypia and mitoses in the lower third of the epithelium) as "condyloma acuminatum with mild dysplasia (low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion/ anal intraepithelial neoplasia 1 [LSIL/AIN I])." Others may classify all condylomata without high-grade dysplasia under the term condyloma acuminatum (LSIL/AIN I),or alternatively, condyloma acuminatum; there is no evidence of high-grade dysplasia.
(17-19) There is an intermediate category of metastatic risk that includes most SCCs of the usual type, some mixed neoplasms (such as hybrid verrucous carcinomas), and high-grade variants of warty/ condylomatous carcinomas.
