Abstract

Background: Condyloma acuminata are anogenital warts caused by human papillomavirus (HPV). Neglected giant peri-anal condyloma acuminata (Buschke Loewenstein Tumours) require major surgical procedures. This report reflects our experience concerning the aggressive surgical approach to this rarely presented type of condyloma acuminata.
