Department of Dermatology, The Second Xiangya Hospital of Central South University, Changsha 410011, China. Electronic address:

Patients with condylomata acuminata of the vulva usually have increased difficulty to achieve complete response to treatment and also have a higher risk for disease recurrence. Treatment for this disease varies, including surgical excision, cryotherapy, electrocautery, CO2 laser therapy, topical therapy, and photodynamic therapy (PDT), but none of these alone provides a satisfactory outcome, especially for giant condyloma acuminatum (GCA). We reported two cases of GCA successfully cured with surgical removal, electrocautery and photodynamic therapy. Read More
