Buschke-Lцwenstein tumor

Buschke-Lцwenstein tumor
a destructive tumor resembling squamous cell carcinoma but actually a form of condyloma acuminatum, usually on the penis but sometimes elsewhere in the anogenital area in either men or women. It presents as a large verrucous to fungating, cauliflowerlike mass that erodes the involved skin and progresses to penetrate and destroy deeper tissues. Called also giant condyloma and verrucous carcinoma.
