The authors review the literature on the subject of the questions raised by the finding of condyloma acuminatum in children. These questions concern its epidemiology, the methods of transmission, the existence or otherwise of sexual abuse and predisposing conditions, its relationship with various viral serotypes and with the onset of neoplasia in adulthood. The most appropriate modes of behaviour in relation to individual cases are also discussed and the authors make a few comments regarding prevention.
