The giant condyloma acuminatum, also known as Buschke- Lowenstein tumor (BLT), is a rare sexually-transmitted disease. Moreover, the condyloma acuminatum produced by Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) infection becomes one the most common sexually-transmitted infection which affects the perineal region. Under such situations, the first therapeutic option is surgical excision. The objective of this article is to present a case in which the tumor has reached giant dimensions and also to stress the importance of an in toto resection, taking into account the high rate of recurrence and the significant potential of malignant transformation of BLT.
