Abstract

We present an unusual case of condylomata acuminata arising in the transplanted skin of a neovagina in a male-to-female transsexual. The neovagina had been constructed using a penile and a scrotal skin flap. Resection of the larger condylomata was performed; then all visible lesions were ablated by electrovaporization. Microsocpic examination and DNA hybridization revealed condylomata acuminata due to human papillomavirus type 16, 31, and 33 infection.
