VALDES ESTEVEZ, Basily; RODRIGUEZ COLLAR, Tomás Lázaro  and  CASA DE VALLE CASTRO, Midalys. Giant condyloma acuminata of penis. Rev Cubana Obstet Ginecol [online]. 2012, vol.38, n.1, pp. 86-92. ISSN 0138-600X.

Introduction: the penis condyloma acuminata is a frequent disease entity with a high rate of relapses. It is caused by the human papilloma virus closely associated with the appearance of cervical-uterine cancer. Objectives: to present a case of a giant penis condyloma acuminata and the features of its diagnosis and treatment. Methods: patient aged 19 came to Urology consultation of the "Carlos J. Finlay" Central Military Hospital in May, 2010 due to a three months course penis tumor. He referred the unprotected sexual practice and at physical examination we noted a tumor of approximately 3 cm diameter of a cauliflower appearance and a thick yellowish secretion involving the balanopreputial groove and the frenum. For present research authors got the informed consent given by patient. Results: due to resistance to habitual treatment for condyloma acuminata ant its large size, a biopsy was carried out confirming the presence of this disease entity. In the operating theater a total exeresis was performed plus circumcision. The final anatomic-pathologic report confirmed the diagnosis. The patient after a year to be operated on remains asymptomatic and now has safe sexual practices. Conclusions: in face of the presence of giant penis condyloma acuminata with a fast growth and refractory to habitual topical treatment it is necessary to make a biopsy of lesion and after to achieve its histological confirmation, to perform total exeresis in the operating room.
