CARNEIRO, Fabiana Pirani et al. Condilomata acuminata with Schistosoma eggs in HIV-positive patient. Rev bras. colo-proctol. [online]. 2007, vol.27, n.2, pp.207-209. ISSN 0101-9880. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-98802007000200013.
Condilomata acuminata and Schistosoma eggs are frequently found in the anal region, but there is no report about the association of these diseases in this region. The association of HPV infection and Schistosoma eggs in an HIV-positive patient was found in uterine cervix and there is evidence suggesting that this association can alters the natural history of these diseases. Like in the cervix, it is possible that this interaction also occurs in the anal region. So, we report a case of anal Condilomata acuminata, in an HIV-positive patient, that was ressected and contained on histopathologic examination, multiple Schistosoma eggs.
