: A 27-year-old woman with systemic lupus erythematosus since childhood and treated with immunosuppressive therapy for many years was referred to our clinic for the presence of widespread condylomatosis and mollusca contagiosum localized in the genital area. These lesions appeared 4 years before and had been treated with both surgery and topical immunomodulation therapy without resolution. The patient stated that she had two sexual partners in that period, who showed no skin lesions. Cutaneous examination showed about 30 to 40 molluscoid lesions of 0.5 cm to 2 cm in diameter and widespread cauliflower-like condyloma acuminata (Figure) spread on the vulvovaginal and perianal region without any symptoms. At the time of observation, she was under treatment with corticosteroids and mycophenolate mofetil.

Abstract

: A 27-year-old woman with systemic lupus erythematosus since childhood and treated with immunosuppressive therapy for many years was referred to our clinic for the presence of widespread condylomatosis and mollusca contagiosum localized in the genital area. These lesions appeared 4 years before and had been treated with both surgery and topical immunomodulation therapy without resolution. The patient stated that she had two sexual partners in that period, who showed no skin lesions. Cutaneous examination showed about 30 to 40 molluscoid lesions of 0.5 cm to 2 cm in diameter and widespread cauliflower-like condyloma acuminata (Figure) spread on the vulvovaginal and perianal region without any symptoms. At the time of observation, she was under treatment with corticosteroids and mycophenolate mofetil.
