is a human papillomavirus (HPV)-induced disease.
1,15,16] Clinically, the differential diagnosis includes condyloma acuminatum
, giant condylomas (called Buschke-Lowenstein tumors), verrucous carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, urethral carcinoma and angiomyxoma.

These tumor types can be categorized as follows: (1) squamous cell tumors including condyloma acuminatum
, flat squamous dysplasia, and invasive squamous cell carcinoma and its variants; (2) adenocarcinoma including rectal type adenocarcinoma, the so-called anal gland adenocarcinoma, fistula-related mucinous adenocarcinoma, and intraepithelial adenocarcinoma (ie, Paget disease); (3) neuroendocrine neoplasms including carcinoid tumor, small cell carcinoma, and non-small cell high-grade neuroendocrine carcinoma; (4) malignant melanoma; (5) mesenchymal tumors; and (6) malignant lymphoma.
(human papilloma-virus) is the most common finding (40-50%) in many series, followed by peri-anal ulcers (32%), fistula-in-ano (30%), anal fissures (30%), sepsis and abscesses, complicated haemorrhoids and proctocolitis.
It is followed by Molluscum Contagiosum (24%) and then by Condyloma Acuminatum
(20%) which was seen only in male patients and Multidermatomal Herpes Zoster (16%) (Table 2).
This type of 'genital wart' is known as condyloma acuminatum
and is most often caused by HPV-6 or HPV-11 and can cause low-grade changes in the cells of the cervix.
The currently available vaccine, Gardasil, was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in June 2006 for females aged 9-26 years to prevent conditions caused by HPV types 6, 11, 16, and 18, the HPV types covered in the vaccine (cervical cancer, condyloma acuminatum
, cervical adenocarcinoma in situ, vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia grades 2 and 3, vaginal intraepithelial neoplasia grades 2 and 3, and CIN grades 1, 2, and 3).
The recombinant vaccine, which is being marketed as Gardasil, is approved for the prevention of the following conditions caused by HPV types 6, 11, 16, and 18: cervical cancer, condyloma acuminatum
, cervical adenocarcinoma in situ, vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia grades 2 and 3, vaginal intraepithelial neoplasia grades 2 and 3, and cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) grades 1, 2, and 3.
