Genital warts caused by Human Papillomavirus (HPV) are considered a sexually transmitted disease with great repercussion at international level. More than 100 pathogens of this disease are known, although only 40 subtypes are sexually transmissible.
Genital warts are also called condylomata acuminata which appear mainly on the lips of the vulva, vagina, penis, urethra, anal canal, rectum and sometimes in the cervix. Genital warts usually cause few or no symptoms and are easily missed. However, in specific cases, warts in the genital area caused by HPV can spread and can develop into malignant tumors.
