Answer

Various topical and systemic treatments are available for the treatment of condyloma acuminatum, including options for home use by the patient (eg, purified podophyllotoxin, imiquimod, sinecatechins). Other treatments that are administered in the physician’s office or emergency department may include acetic acid applications or interferon injections.

An important preventive therapy for condyloma acuminatum and other dysplasias is the human papillomavirus vaccine (9vHPV, Gardasil 9). The FDA has expanded the age to receive the vaccine through age 45 years. [7]
