The use of topical 5-fluorouracil in the treatment of genital condylomas.

Author information

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Medical College of Virginia, Richmond.


Topical 5-FU is indicated for therapy-resistant condylomas and for extensive untreated vulvar condylomas. It may be the treatment of choice for vaginal condylomas. Applications of 5-FU once weekly to the vagina and twice weekly to the vulva for 10 weeks appear to be as effective as continued regimens but are better tolerated. Perhaps the greatest value of 5-FU lies in the periodic application for prevention of recurrences of condylomas removed by surgical methods.
