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

Anal verrucous carcinoma is not related to infection with human papillomaviruses and should be distinguished from giant condyloma (Buschke-Löwenstein tumour).

Histopathology 2017 May 24;70(6):938-945. Epub 2017 Feb 24.

Institute of Microbiology and Immunology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Ljubljana, Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Aims: Verrucous carcinoma (VC) is a variant of well-differentiated squamous cell carcinoma and in the anal region is regarded as synonymous with giant condyloma (Buschke-Löwenstein tumour) (BLT). Aetiology, diagnostic criteria and clinical behaviour of both lesions are controversial. Recent studies suggest that VC at other sites is not associated with human papillomaviruses (HPV). Read More

Successful improvement of Buschke-Löwenstein tumour in an HIV-infected patient with antiretroviral therapy alone.

BMJ Case Rep 2016 Nov 21;2016. Epub 2016 Nov 21.

Hopitaux Universitaires Henri Mondor, Creteil, France.

Buschke-Löwenstein tumour (BLT), also defined as giant condyloma acuminatum, is a rare exophytic tumour affecting the anogenital and perianal regions associated with human papillomavirus (HPV) infections, with a potential of malignant transformation and which is at a greater risk in T-cell mediated immunodeficient patients. Different therapeutic options, alone or in combination, have been reported for the treatment of BLT including local therapy but wide surgical local excision is however recommended as the most important therapeutic intervention. We report a case of a HIV-infected man who developed a voluminous pelvic BLT which disappeared progressively under antiretroviral therapy with no additional treatment, contemporary to an improvement of his immunity, highlighting the possible spontaneous reversibility of HPV-induced tumours in treated HIV infection.
