Definition of «Condyloma»

Condyloma: A wartlike growth around the anus, vulva, or glans penis. There are three major types of condylomas, each of which is sexually transmitted. These include condyloma acuminatum or genital warts, condyloma latum (a form of secondary syphilis), and condyloma subcutaneum or molluscum contagiosum.

The word "condyloma" comes from the Greek "kondylos" meaning a knuckle or knob. The same Greek root gave rise to the word "condyle" referring to a rounded articular surface of a bone as, for example, the lateral condyle of the tibia (the rounded bony prominence on the outside of the ankle).
