Condyloma acuminatum is one of the most commonly occurring sexually transmitted diseases, caused by the human papillomavirus. We report the case of a male with intraurethral condyloma acuminata treated through electrocauterization. He presented to our genitourinary outpatient department with several days of painless gross hematuria. Patient history indicated 3 years of ongoing hemodialysis and a prior ureteroscopy. Multiple intraurethral tumors and bulbar urethral strictures were found by cystoscopy. Eventually, the patient underwent transurethral resection with electrocauterization. The patient recovered well, and there was no evidence of recurrence at the 1-year follow-up consultation. While there are many different methods for the treatment of intraurethral condyloma acuminata, panurethral condyloma acuminata are rare and difficult to treat. Here, we report a case of panurethral condyloma acuminata where urethroscopy with electrocauterization, without the use of the cutting mode, was performed with rapid, safe, and effective results.
