A 48-year-old female patient presented to us with asymptomatic pigmented warty papular lesions over labia majora and minora for 3 months. There was no history of similar lesions elsewhere on the body. The patient was married and there was no history of similar lesion in spouse. There was no history of high-risk sexual behavior in patient and her spouse.
General physical and systemic examination revealed no abnormality. Cutaneous examination revealed hyperpigmented warty papular lesions over both labia majora and minora. There was no discharge per vaginum. The perianal area, buttocks, and rest of the body surface were normal. The oral mucosa was normal. There was no lymphadenopathy.
Couple was subjected to S. HIV and S. VDRL testing which were non reactive.
Clinically viral [human papilloma virus (HPV)] wart was considered. As there was no history of high-risk behavior in couple and no serologic evidence of STI, biopsy was done.
