Condyloma Acuminatum Explained

Condyloma Acuminatum is commonly known as genital warts. It is a symptom of a viral infection called the human papilloma virus (HPV). The human papilloma virus is a group of more than 100 different types of viruses that infect the human body. About 90% of the accuminata are related to human papilloma virus strains 6 and 11.

Condyloma acuminata are small pointed projections or warty growths in the throat, cervix, vagina, anus, and penis. From small beginnings, condyloma acuminatum can multiply and spread to produce enormous, cauliflower-like masses in considerable number and set closely together.

Symptoms of Condyloma Accuminatum

Symptoms are most often seen in people between the ages of 15 to 33. Initially, condyloma accuminatum shows up as tiny blemishes that can be as small as a pinhead. The color can be gray, light brown, pale yellow, or pink. They have a rough feeling upon contact. Some people complain of itching.

Condyloma accuminatum has more eruptions during pregnancy when there is profuse vaginal discharge. The hormonal changes during the pregnancy seem to boost its growth. Mostly, they occur as small, painless bumps which tend to make them go unnoticed.
