Answer

Verrucous carcinoma of the genitalia (giant condyloma of Buschke-Löwenstein) is a low-grade, locally invasive squamous cell carcinoma that is associated with HPV types 6 and 11 and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of lesions greater than 1 cm in diameter. The only appropriate treatment is radical surgical extirpation.
