Abstract

Giant condyloma also known as Buschke-Loewenstein tumour, is a malignant tumour of the genital and anal area, arising from genital warts. Due to the large size and the infiltrated region, in many cases surgical treatment, which is essential, is impossible to perform without maiming the patient. The role of radiation therapy is not clear. The authors present a literature review of the efficacy of giant condyloma radiotherapy.
