Condyloma acuminatum also called as mucocutaneous external genital wart is a benign neoplasm of genital tract, caused by human papilloma virus usually by types 6 and 11. An unbooked case during pregnancy came for checkup in antenatal outpatient department (OPD) with genital lesions. On genital examination, multiple warty lesions were seen on vulva and anal region. She was counseled for available treatment options but she did not come to receive any therapy. She came at 38 weeks in early labor with same lesions and delivery was done by emergency lower segment cesarean section (LSCS) uneventfully. Postoperatively, mother and baby were doing well. Lesions were disappeared after delivery spontaneously. Condyloma acuminatum is a condition which can be managed conservatively during pregnancy.
