ABSTRACT

Background: Buschke-Löwenstein tumor (BTL) is a giant condyloma acuminatum considered to be a putative precancerous lesion with a high recurrence rate after treatment.
Case Presentation: We report a 31-year-old patient presenting with a giant condyloma acuminatum in the perineum and vulvar region. The tumor was removed by wide radical excision followed by plastic reconstruction. The patient did not develop local recurrence or distant metastasis as observed over the one-year follow up appointment.
Conclusion: This is a case report concerning successful treatment of Buschke-Löwenstein tumor combining surgery and Glucan therapy with excellent functional and cosmetic results.
