  • Condyloma acuminata are epidermal lesions caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) most commonly affecting the anogenital region. Urethral involvement is uncommon, and may mimic other urethral lesions. In this case report, a 62-year-old patient presents with what was believed to be a urethral caruncle and underwent successful resection with the final pathologic diagnosis of urethral condyloma. The clinical features and diagnosis are reviewed. This condition should be considered in the differential diagnosis of females with known HPV or those who are deemed higher risk with unprotected sexual encounters.
