Resumen

MONTANA C, Nelson; LABRA W, Andrés  y  SCHIAPPACASSE F, Giancarlo. Giant condylomata acuminata (Buschke - Lowenstein tumor): Series of 7 cases and literature review. Rev. chil. radiol. [online]. 2014, vol.20, n.2, pp.57-63. ISSN 0717-9308.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-93082014000200005.

Giant condyloma acuminata (Buschke - Lowenstein tumor ) is a rare disease that commonly affects immunocompromised patients, presenting a high percentage of malignancy, recurrence rate and mortality. There is little consensus regarding treatment and post-operative controls, where imaging studies play an important role, existing sparse literature regarding this. In this review, we present the cases of seven patients, along with their characteristics mainly on MRI as well as CT scan, in addition to a revision of the literature. In most cases, pedunculated exophytic "cauliflower-like" lesions are observed. Which are of soft-tissue density and vascularized. In magnetic resonance imaging they are isointense on T1, slightly hyperintense on T2, with restricted diffusion on DWI, and heterogenous enhancement on gadolinium administration, with a late progressive enhancement pattern.

Palabras clave : Buschke-Lowenstein tumor; Giant condyloma acuminata; Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
