Genital Condyloma in a 2-Year-Old Child Secondary to Circumcision: A Case Report

Published on: 10th January, 2024

Accumulated condylomas are exophytic tumors with a warty and hyperkeratosic surface due to the Human papillomavirus (HPV). Its prevalence in children is difficult to estimate due to limitations in epidemiological data. Its recurrent character is found in 30% of patients. Its management is very complex in children because of skin fragility. Circumcision is an operation consisting of the removal of part of the foreskin. This practice is done either with a simple knife or a pair of non-aseptic scissors which can be a source of contamination including HPV (Condyloma). Traditional circumcision does not seem to be reported in the literature as a mode of contamination. We report a case of genital condyloma in a child 2 years after circumcision. This is a 2-year-old male with no medical history but with a surgical history of circumcision that was brought by his parents in dermatological consultation for papular lesions accumulated on the penis. At the interrogation, we found the notion of recent circumcision performed by a tradithérapeute. The physical examination finds a good general condition. Dermatological examination reveals on the glans of multiple papules, exophitic, with warty and hyperkeratotic surface, of normal skin color. Furthermore, the physical examination of both parents was normal. The diagnosis of accumulated condyloma secondary to probable circumcision was retained before the clinical appearance of the lesions. Two electrocoagulation sessions spaced one month apart under local anesthesia were the treatment with a favorable evolution.
