A 45-year-old retropositive female presented to us with recurrent painful ulcers on the external genitalia that were clinically suggestive of herpes genitalis. Incidentally, we noticed few raised lesions on the labia majora that the patient was unaware of [Figure 1]. Because she was recently diagnosed with human immunodeficiency virus infection, her CD4 counts were not available. Clinical examination revealed multiple soft warty growths on the labia majora. A biopsy from one of the lesions was sent for histopathological examination, which showed features as shown in [Figure 2].
