Sexually transmitted genital lesion caused by a virus (Human Papilloma Virus = HPV).

Can present as a cutaneous wart on the vulva, vagina or anus in women, and on the penis, testicles or anus in men.

If it develops on the cervix, the condyloma does not take the form of a wart and is called a flat condyloma.

A certain type of HPV is found to be present in the majority of cervical dysplasia cases.
