Abstract

Condyloma acuminata or genital warts are caused by human papilloma virus (HPV). Ongoing proliferation of HPV in patients with congenital or acquired immunodeficiency states leads to the development of rapidly progressive and sometimes locally invasive tumor with or without dysplasia. Aggressive treatment, diagnostic immuno-typing, and follow-up are necessary in patients with ongoing immunosuppression. We report a case of giant ano-genital condylomatosis due to HPV types 6 and 11 in a patient with chronic myeloid leukemia after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. The tumor was successfully treated with surgical excision and local application of 5% imiquimod cream.
