 es Exéresis quirúrgica radical como único tratamiento del condiloma acuminado gigante: a propósito de un caso
Parapar, Indalecio & Taboada, Noel

Resumen

Los condilomas o verrugas genitales son producidos por el virus del papiloma humano del que existen más de 100 genotipos distintos. De ellos, cerca de 40 son transmitidos sexualmente. Se presenta el caso de una mujer con condiloma acuminado gigante de localización vulvo perineal y perianal, de cinco años de evolución que le dificultaba la micción, las relaciones sexuales, e incluso la marcha; además había fetidez, prurito y en ocasiones dolor. El examen histopatológico fue compatible con condiloma acuminado. Se realizó extirpación quirúrgica radical del tumor con excelentes resultados funcionales y cosméticos, sin complicaciones postoperatorias y sin recurrencias ni cicatrices hipertróficas al año de evolución. Es de interés la publicación por tratarse del primer caso que se informa en el Estado de Eritrea, país en desarrollo del cuerno africano.

 en Surgical radical excision alone as a treatment for the giant condyloma acuminatum: a case report
Parapar, Indalecio & Taboada, Noel

Abstract

Condylomas or genital warts are caused by the human papilloma virus, from which exist more than 100 different genotypes. About 40 of them are sexually transmitted. We report a case of a female patient with a giant condyloma acuminatum in the vulvar perineal and perianal regions, of around five years of course, which disturbs her urination, sexual intercourse, and even walk; accompanied by pruritus, foul-smelling, and occasionally pain. The histopathological study was compatible with condyloma acuminatum. She was treated conservatively with radical local surgical excision of the tumor with excellent functional and cosmetic results. No postoperative complications were observed. A year later there were neither recurrences nor hypertrophic scars. We consider interesting to publish it due to it’s the first case published in the state of Eritrea, developing country of the horn of Africa.
