Abstract

Small condylomata acuminata are easily diagnosed clinically and are not often difficult to treat. Giant condylomata, however, can pose real problems in diagnosis and treatment. They must be distinguished from verrucous carcinomas or giant condylomata with squamous malignant change. Large biopsy specimens that include the stroma are necessary in order to make the correct diagnosis, since these entities have somewhat similar histologic features. Treatment should be surgical because radiation and podophyllum have both proved to be of little benefit. Surgical removal also allows excellent pathologic study to determine the presence of squamous malignant change or verrucous carcinoma.
