Buschke-Lowenstein tumor, Condylomata Acuminata, Papillomaviridae


The Buschke-Löwenstein Tumor is a rare, sexually transmitted disease, triggered by human papillomavirus, specially the subtypes 6 and 11. It is characterized as a cauliflower-shape exophytic mass, slowly progressive, with high local recurrence rates and high infiltration. The main risk factor is immunosuppression. Surgical treatment is usually preferred, with or without adjuvant therapy. It has a great impact on the patients’ life, impairing their life quality. We report three cases of Giant Condyloma with diverse histopathological findings with varying degrees of infiltration and papillomatosis.
