Carbon Dioxide Laser Vaporization Combined with Intralesionally Injected Interferon Alfa-2b in the Treatment of Multiple Condyloma Acuminata

Abstract

Condyloma acuminatum is a contagious viral infection caused by types 6 and 11 human papillomavirus[HPV], but may also be caused by types 16, 18, 30s group, 40s group, 50s group, and 60s group. The warts tend to occur most directly by coitus. Treatment of vulvar condyloma ranges from topical podophyllin, trichloroacetic acid, and 5-fluorouracil application to local excision, cryotherapy, electrosurgery, and carbon dioxide laser vaporization. The goal of treatment is removal of the warts;it is not possible to eradicate the viral infection. We have experienced one case of multiple condyloma acuminata in the vagina treated with carbon dioxide laser vaporization combined with intralesionally injected interferon alfa-2b, which is presented with a brief review of the literatures.
