Diagnosis of Genital Warts During Pregnancy-Clinical Images
Condyloma Acuminata, also called veneral warts are caused by the HPV, which is a small DNA double-stranded virus. There are many strains of HPV and some of them will result in the development of genital warts. The growth is mainly seen in women who are sexually active. Vaginal discharge, use of oral contraceptives and pregnancy favor their growth. Warts are typically diagnosed by clinical inspection. HPV serotyping may be done. In young women, lesions often disappear spontaneously. Local application with trichloro-acetic acid or podopyhllin and removal of larger warts by diathermy loop or laser ablation are the mainstay of treatment. Here, we present a case of a 26 years old pregnant woman present in OPD with genital warts.
