Genetial Warts

Genetial warts (genital warts) may appear rough and cluster-like similar to a plantar wart and both are caused by HPV, however, genital warts have an oncogenic potential making them more worrisome. The other name of this disorder is condyloma acuminatum. This disease affects females more frequently than males. The female-to male ratio averages 1.4:1. The highest incidence of GW is found in young sexually active adults betwween 15 and 25 years. Condyloma acuminatum doesn’t become clinically apparent until several months after inoculation.

Plantar Wart, HPV

The symptom of the disease is pink-to brown papillomatous papules or nodules on the genitalia, perineum, crural folds, and anus. They vary in size and can form large masses. Their growth can extend into the vagina, urethra, cervix, perirectal epithelium, anus, and rectum; such lesions should be removed.
