Condyloma acuminatum is one of the four types of common human venereal diseases that have viral etiology. Also known as a “moist wart”, condyloma acuminatum is most often seen on the mucosal surface of the anogenital area. However, occurrences on the mucosal surface of head and neck regions are quite rare. We have recently encountered a case of condyloma acuminatum on the mucosal surface of pharynx, verified by histologic examination. We report a case of condyloma acuminatum on the mucosal surface of pharynx with a review of related literatures. (Korean J Otolaryngol 2003;46:341-4)
