Abstract

Giant Condyloma Acuminata (GCA), also known as Bushcke-Löwenstein tumor, is a rare disease which affects 0.1% of the population. It is considered as an intermediate step between the condyloma acuminata and squamous cell carcinoma and may represent a variant of verrucous carcinoma. Although histopathologically benign, it tends to become very large. Incubation period of Human Papillomavirus (HPV) that causes condyloma acuminatum is 1 to 6 months. The exophytic outgrowths have been described as “cauliflower-like”. Due to rarity of the disease, there is a lack of controlled studies on optimal management.
