Genital warts (condylomata acuminata) are caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) and are usually transmitted sexually. We present an atypical case of a vaginal wart presenting as a single pedunculated mass protruding outside the vagina in a pregnant woman in labour. On examination of the vulva, a soft, pink papilliferous growth of 6 × 4 cm size was seen hanging outside the vaginal introitus. Speculum examination revealed that the growth was attached to the posterior and lateral vaginal wall near the fornix. Genital warts can proliferate during pregnancy due to altered immunity and increased blood supply, as seen in this case. Vaginal warts can also cause problems during delivery, since they prevent the vagina from stretching appropriately.
