Buschke-Löwenstein tumor, or giant condyloma acuminatum, is a relatively uncommon lesion of the anus with aggressive local invasive behavior which may present as a large warty tumor of the genital region with expansive and destructive growth. Many sporadic reports have been published suggesting various therapeutic strategies. We report a case of Buschke-Löwenstein tumor treated with conservative surgery followed by reconstructive procedures without a loop colostomy.
