Abstract

Ninety-four patients with condylomata acuminata of the lower genital tract and perianal region were treated with the carbon dioxide laser. Most were managed in the outpatient clinic, but 1 to 4 treatments were required depending upon extent of involvement. Of 90 patients, 75 (83.3%) were free of lesions on all follow-up examinations after initial treatment. Of 15 patients with recurrent lesions, 13 underwent a second laser treatment; 7 of these 13 have been subsequently free of condylomata. The overall success rate was 91%. The carbon dioxide laser provides an appealing method of management of condylomata acuminata because of its precision, rapid healing without scarring, and safety when used during pregnancy.
