I.INTRODUCTIONCondyloma acuminata refer to all epidermal manifestation attributed toepidermotropic vulvar papilloma virus. Condyloma acuminata are also referred to asvenereal warts, genital warts and papilloma acuminatum. Approximately 90% of thecases of condyloma acuminata are related to HPV 6 and 11. These 2 types are benignand/or the least likely to have neoplastic potential. Certain types such as HPV 33, 35,39, 40, 43, 45, 51-56, 58, have moderate potential for neoplastic conversion,
andsome have high potential for dysplasia such as HPV type 16 and 18. Condylomaacuminata is a sexually transmitted disease. It is manifested by the presence of wartsin the vulvar, genital, and anal area. If left untreated in pregnant women, it couldcause complication to the baby because the warts could be propagated to the airway passages of the child. Even if the disease is treated initially, it has a high chance of recurrence.In the hospitals we were affiliated, condyloma acuminata cases are verylimited. In the first week of our exposure in Jose B Lingad Memorial RegionalHospital (JBLMRH), we were given a chance to handle a case of condylomaacuminata. We chose the disease for our study for several reasons. First, cases of thiskind of venereal disease are very rare. Although we had encountered other types of sexually transmitted disease such as syphilis and gonorrhea in our previous exposure,we never encountered such derange this kind of manifestations. Second, because of the limited cases, we do not have much knowledge about the disease, and thecuriosity that we had motivated us to conduct a case study regarding the ailment.Lastly, we chose condyloma acuminata because of the increasing number of cases of sexually transmitted diseases.In the United States of America, annual cases of condyloma acuminata is 1%.Prevalence had reported to exceed 50%. Health experts estimate there are more casesof genital HPV infection than any other STI in the United States. According to theAmerican Social Health Association, approximately 5.5 million new cases of sexuallytransmitted HPV infections are reported every year. At least 20 million people in thiscountry are already infected.
In this study, we are to deal with the pathophysiology of condylomaacuminata, the interpretation of abnormal results based on the diagnostic andlaboratory procedures done to the patient. We will also deal with the appropriateinterventions, nursing diagnosis for clients with the said disease condition, thesuggested medical and surgical management including the diet, exercise, andmedication we are to administer when caring for the patient. This case study warrantsto widen our knowledge of the occurrence of the specific disease. It will also assistus in developing our clinical and academic competence by giving us a new array of knowledge about nursing interventions, and responsibilities appropriate for clientshaving, not only condyloma acuminata, but other STD’s as well. The study will alsoenable us to enhance our resourcefulness as nurses, and our critical thinkingconsidering the limited client information that are available and presented. It willalso help us develop our leadership skills and the flexibility that we have if we are presented with different unexpected situations by widening our knowledge anddeveloping our nursing judgment. Most importantly, this study will enable us toshow and evaluate the effectiveness and productiveness that we have as studentnurses in applying preventive, curative, and rehabilitative measures for the patientwith this disease.
