Condylomata – Sexually Transmitted Infection

Condylomata, sexually transmitted infection are localized hyperkeratotic lesions that occur: in the anogenital region, as shown in Figure (a) and (b) in the axillae, as shown in Figure (c) and (d), and at the base of the nostrils (but only sometimes), as shown in Figure (e). Histologically, condylomata have a similar appearance to that illustrated in the biopsy of the chancre.
