Genital Warts

(Condyloma acuminata, venereal warts, anogenital warts)

Genital warts are lesions of the skin or mucous membranes of the genital area, the (HPV) are caused by human papilloma virus specific types. Some HPV types cause flat warts in the cervical canal or anus; infection with certain types of HPV can lead to cancer. The diagnosis of warts is based on the characteristic clinical appearances. Multiple treatment options exist, but few are very effective, provided they are applied repeatedly over weeks to months. In immunocompetent patients genital warts can disappear without treatment, in patients with impaired cell-mediated immunity (eg. As a result of pregnancy or HIV infection) but they can also persist and continue to spread.

In the US, an estimated 1.4 million people have genital warts at any given time and there are every year about 360.00 new cases of genital warts on. In the US, every year there are about 14 million new cases of sexually transmitted HPV infections. About 80% of sexually active women up to the age of 50 years infected with genital HPV at least once.

About 80% of sexually active women up to the age of 50 years infected with genital HPV at least once. Most HPV infections disappear spontaneously within 1-2 years, but some remain. Etiology ? There are> 100 known types of HPV. Some cause common skin warts. Some primarily infect the skin and mucous membranes of the anogenital region. anogenital to the important manifestations of HPV include genital warts (condylomata acuminata) intraepithelial neoplasia and carcinoma of the cervix, anus or penis bladder and oral cancer bowenoid papulosis genital warts are benign anogenital warts, usually caused by HPV types 6 and 11. FIG. Low- and high-grade intraepithelial neoplasia and cancer can be caused by HPV. Nearly all cases of cervical cancer are caused by HPV; about 70% are caused by the types 16 and 18 and many of the remaining cases result from the types 31, 33, 35 and 39. HPV types that relate primarily to the anogenital area, can be transmitted by orogenital contact the oropharynx ; Type 16 appears to be responsible for many cases of oropharyngeal cancer. HPV types 16 and 18 can cause cancer, including the vulva, vagina and penis in other areas. HPV is transmitted by skin lesions during-to-skin contact. The types that affect the anogenital region are transmitted sexually usually through penetrative vaginal or anal intercourse, but it can be digital, oral and genital contact nichtpenetrativer be involved. Genital warts are more common in patients with weakened immune systems. The growth rate varies, but pregnancy, immunosuppression or skin maceration can accelerate the growth and spread of warts. Symptoms and complaints warts appear after an incubation period of 1-6 months. Visible anogenital warts are usually soft, moist, tiny pink or gray polyps (raised lesions), the zoom can be stalked have rough surfaces can in clusters occur The warts are usually asymptomatic, but some patients suffer from itching, burning or discomfort. In men, warts are most often under the foreskin, urethra at the coronal sulcus, the meatus and on the penile shaft before. They can occur perianal and rectum, especially in homosexual men.
