BACKGROUND Giant Condyloma Acuminatum (GCA) presents difficulties in therapeutic management, mainly due to local invasion and recurrences. Treatment measures vary from topical agents to aggressive methods such as surgical excision, radiation, laser surgery, chemotherapy, immunotherapy or their combination.
METHOD A 48-year-old hetrosexual, HIV-negative male with a 20 year-year history of GCA, following an unsuccessful surgical operation, underwent radical excision with immediate mesh-skin grafting.
CONCLUSION The absence of relapse and the excellent cosmetic results obtained one and a half years post-operative may put this treatment option in the first line of treatment choices for GCA
