Abstract

ESTRADA-BRIZUELA, Yarima; MENDEZ-LEON, Raudel; QUIROGA-MERINO, Luis Ernesto  and  HERNANDEZ-AGUERO, Manuel. Buschke-Lowenstein tumor: presentation of the case. AMC [online]. 2020, vol.24, n.4, e6668.  Epub Aug 01, 2020. ISSN 1025-0255.

Background:

the Buschke-Löwenstein tumor is a giant acuminate condyloma larger than 10 cm, more frequent in men, so the treatment of choice must always be surgical.

Objective:

to describe a case of giant acuminate condylomata.

Case report:

54-year-old white male patient, who came with papillomatosis formations with soft and moist consistency of cauliflower, in both inguinal regions; on the right side of 13 centimeters in diameter and 19 centimeters on the left and at the root of the penis and perianal region of 2 centimeters, associated with pain of slight intensity in the lower limbs and occasional fetidity. Preoperative studies including non-reactive serology and HIV were performed. He underwent surgery, performing excision and closure with abdominal skin flap. He evolved clinically stable, although he presented an infection of the surgical wound where Escherichia Coli, gentamicin sensitive, was reported; he complied with treatment and left without further complications.

Conclusions:

Buschke-Löwenstein tumor is currently considered as a form of verrucous carcinoma, it does not present cellular atypia, described as benign, but one third of the cases can be maligne. Despite frequent recurrences, some authors consider it as a malignant tumor. Despite the existence of several treatments, the surgical treatment is the one with the best results.
