The title suggests that not treating condylomata is an op-tion. In view of the long-term consequences of chronically persistent HPV infections, not to treat is of course not a rea-listic option. The chance of developing (pre) malignancies such as M. Bowen and squamous cell carcinomas is approxi-mately 10% in oncogenic HPV infections. In immunosup-pressed patients and in the MSM and HIV +populations, that percentage can even increase to over 50%. The classic and more experimental treatment options will be discussed. It is expected that current experimental therapies will become the standard treatment in the future.
