Paper Abstract

Nd:YAG laser therapy was applied in 43 adults and 7 children with condylomata acuminata. The dosages of radiation and the procedures depended upon the extent of the lesions. A complete clearing occurred in 94% of the cases, and in 6% there were relapses. The procedure should be performed in children under general anesthesia, and in adults under local anesthesia since radiation with Nd:YAG laser is rather painful. The healing was uneventful, with no scarring, and the results appear to be better than obtained with cryotherapy which gives 80.8% of complete clearing.
