Asian Journal of Research in Dermatological Science,
Buschke- Löwenstein tumor is an uncommon pathology, transmitted mainly by sexual route. It is more encountered in young adult males. Its occurrence in children and adolescents should eliminate a notion of sexual abuse. We report a case of Buschke-Lowenstein tumor of scrotal localization in a 13-year-old teenager. He presented with a scrotal confluent nodules. Clinical examination showed a large oozing cauliflower painful mass invading the entire scrotum. Inguinal lymphadenopathy was also found. The analysis of the oozing fluid shows the presence of numerous gram negative bacilli. The microscopic examination revealed an acanthotic papillomatous epidermis with koilocytosis, associated with a dense, fibrous and inflammatory dermis. The patient underwent complete excision of the tumour and the postoperative course was simple. Buschke-Löwenstein tumor is uncommon in teenagers. Nevertheless its clinical and histological presentation is typical.
