Condyloma Acuminata : Transmission
Transmission: Most condylomas are transmitted sexually by minor trauma during intercourse. Men whose sexual partners have HPV-related cervical lesions have an increased incidence of condylomas.
Transmission occurs more readily from females to males than from males to females. The incubation period is 2 to 3 months. Once an infection occurs, autoinfection is common. Many cases of HPV infection are asymptomatic and subclinical.
