INTRODUCTION: Perianal giant condyloma acuminatum is a rare clinical condition related to human papillomavirus infection and characterized by a circumferential, exophytic, cauliflower-like mass with an irregular warty surface localized in the anal region. TECHNIQUE: A circular incision with a diathermocoagulator was performed on macroscopically healthy skin, 1 cm from the margin of the lesion. The dermis was divided from the subcutaneous tissue. This way, a mucocutaneous cylinder including the whole lesion was obtained. A median radial incision was carried out to open the cylinder at its front. A progressive circumferential section on healthy mucosa (≈1 cm above the margin of the lesion) by means of a radiofrequency dissector allowed for the complete removal of the mass. The healthy mucosa of the anal canal was pulled out by Allis forceps and was sutured to the external margin of the internal sphincter with single layer of Vicryl (polyglactin 910) 2-0 sutures. RESULTS: Two months after surgery, no findings of anal stenosis or mucosal ectropion were reported. At the 1-year follow-up there was no recurrence of condylomatosis in any of the 3 cases. CONCLUSIONS: Our procedure seems simpler to perform when compared with other techniques and reduces hospital stay and complications such as anal stenosis and mucosal ectropion.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Perianal giant condyloma acuminatum is a rare clinical condition related to human papillomavirus infection and characterized by a circumferential, exophytic, cauliflower-like mass with an irregular warty surface localized in the anal region. TECHNIQUE: A circular incision with a diathermocoagulator was performed on macroscopically healthy skin, 1 cm from the margin of the lesion. The dermis was divided from the subcutaneous tissue. This way, a mucocutaneous cylinder including the whole lesion was obtained. A median radial incision was carried out to open the cylinder at its front. A progressive circumferential section on healthy mucosa (≈1 cm above the margin of the lesion) by means of a radiofrequency dissector allowed for the complete removal of the mass. The healthy mucosa of the anal canal was pulled out by Allis forceps and was sutured to the external margin of the internal sphincter with single layer of Vicryl (polyglactin 910) 2-0 sutures. RESULTS: Two months after surgery, no findings of anal stenosis or mucosal ectropion were reported. At the 1-year follow-up there was no recurrence of condylomatosis in any of the 3 cases. CONCLUSIONS: Our procedure seems simpler to perform when compared with other techniques and reduces hospital stay and complications such as anal stenosis and mucosal ectropion.
