Condyloma Accuminatum

  • Sanghwa Yu


Condyloma is the most common disease of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) of anorectal region coming from human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. Treatment is focused on removing warts locally rather than treatment for infection. Several factors should be considered prior to choosing the treatment, such as the location and degree of warts and preference of the patients.
