Genital warts (condylomata acuminata) are caused by human papilloma viruses (HPV) and usually are transmitted sexually. These lesions often increase in size during pregnancy and can pose some problems in the therapeutic management on one hand; vaginal labor can expose the new-born baby to the risk of contamination with HPV (estimated at 4%), on the other hand. Starting from 15 cases, the authors tried to show the clinical, therapeutic and prognosis distinctive features of this association.
