Condyloma acuminatum (CA) is a benign tumor primarily caused by infection with human papillomavirus (HPV) type-6 or type-11, lesions of which are most frequently found on the genital, perianal squamous mucosa, and skin. CA outside the anogenital region is not common. Here, we report a case showing simultaneous presence of CA on the vaginal orifice, areola, groin, and umbilicus in a 32-year-old pregnant woman. Histopathological examination and HPV detection are essential in making a definitive diagnosis of CA on multiple sites. The patient was treated with microwave and liquid nitrogen cryotherapy, but repeated relapse of the lesions were observed. Patients with CA during pregnancy represent a special risk group. These cases are usually characterized by fast-growing warts, multi-site or special site warts, a reduced tolerance, and poor response to treatment. Hence, we should pay more attention to CA in pregnant women in the process of diagnosis and treatment, especially cases outside the anogenital region.
