A Mother's worst fear
1.5year female child was brought to the hospital at Tain in the Brong Ahafo Region. The lesions were not present at birth. The mother noticed the anal growth about a year ago and has since then seen an increase in size. The lesions have not in anyway interfered with normal growth and activity. She is able to pass stools normally. There is no history to suspect child abuse . Child is handled by few close relatives. The hands seen parting the anus is that of the parent.
Examination: soft warty non tender lesions. Anal sphincter tone was normal.
Diagnosis of anal warts was made and referred to the teaching hospital. This cases was lost to follow up. We are not sure if patient did turn up at the hospital (KATH)
