Perianal Giant Condylomata Acuminata: Buschke-Lowenstein Tumour



Condyloma acuminatum is caused by Human Papillomavirus (HPV). This is the most commonly occurring sexually transmitted infection in the anogenital region. Giant condyloma acuminatum, also known as Buschke-Löwenstein tumor (BLT), is a rare disease. Most important treatment method for this locally aggressive disease is surgical excision. It differs from normal condyloma acuminatum for its high degree of predisposition to malignant transformation. The purpose of this paper is to present the case that reached huge dimensions in the perianal region and that was treated with wide resection and skin grafting.
