The Buschke-Löwenstein tumor (BLT), also known as giant condylomata acuminata (GCA), is a pseudo-epithelial proliferation engendered by the human papillomavirus (HPV). Interestingly, its location at the anal margin, or perianal skin, is rare. The authors present the case of a gentleman who became unstable while standing, stating that his ears were ringing. His emergency presentation, clinical course, and imaging findings are discussed. The patient presented with signs of condyloma acuminata and BLT. This can be excised through surgery and removed with the help of adjuvant treatments, but there is still much to learn about this disease.
