Abstract

Viral venereal infection caused by human Papillomavirus has reached epidemic state. The proper management of this infection in men is of great benefit, because it may possibly decrease the reservoir of disease in both sexes from which genital condylomata and associated lesions may arise. We report a selection of current knowledge about the epidemiology, etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of male condyloma, occurring predominantly among male consorts of women with genital human Papillomavirus infection. In a review of 1455 affected women, compiled from the literature, 1019 (70 per cent) of their sexual partners were diagnosed as having been infected with the same viral disease. The current diagnostic and treatment modalities and their outcomes are discussed with appropriate recommendations for their use.
