Condyloma acuminatum and other venereal warts are common sexually transmitted diseases in males and females. Usually the clinical treatment of anogenital warts is conservative, but in extreme cases, when conservative therapy is insufficient, complete surgical excision is the treatment of choise. Giant condyloma acuminate (Buschke-Löwenstein tumor) is a rare clinical type of genital wart, more frequent in male patients, considered a preneoplastic lesion. We reported a 57-years-old male presented with cauliflower-like growth over the anogenital and sacral region, earlier diagnosed as condyloma acuminatum which was resistant to conservative therapy. During the period between 2013 and 2014 the patient underwent two surgical procedures associated to constant medical treatment.
