Condyloma acuminata (anogenital/venereal warts) are caused by infection with human papillomavirus 6 or 11. In transplant recipients they may become extremely extensive. Treatment has included fluorouracil, podophyllin, podophyllotoxin, intralesional interferon, topical interferon, systemic interferon, and, more recently, imiquimod, which causes the induction of cytokines, especially interferon alpha. Lesions have responded in 50% of nontransplant patients receiving the 5% cream. Invasive treatments have included surgical excision, cryotherapy, electrocautery, and carbon dioxide laser. Recurrences are common. A, Condyloma acuminata in a male transplant recipient. B, Condyloma acuminata in a female transplant recipient.
