in man, a limited inflammatory papillate out-growth of the skin and mucosa.

Condylomas usually arise in places subject to constant friction and irritation. A distinction is made between flat condylomas, mushroomlike growths resting on a broad base that are generally a manifestation of secondary syphilis or yaws, and acuminate condylomas, which are caused by a virus, have a lobular structure, and rest on a thin pedicle.

Condylomas develop, as a rule, in slovenly persons on genitalia that have been moistened by excretions and irritated, in the intergluteal and inguinal folds, and less commonly, in the arm-pits and in the corners of the mouth. The surface of a condyloma may become ulcerated. Condylomas do not disappear spontaneously. They can be treated by eliminating the primary pathological process (treating the syphilis, gonorrhea, yaws, or intertrigo) or by electrocoagulation or curettage.
