Patient had a colonoscopy 2 years earlier- exept diverticuli in sigmoid colon no other findings. It is Maybe difficult to notice but a few small polips were around anal canal. She was treated for fungal infection (itraconazole) locally ungm. with zinc. Diosmine oraly was also prescribed. After 2 weeks eaching was gone. The excisional biopsy of polips was taken which proved also HPV infection. The patient is under observation. DO NOT treat patients with steroids around anal canal if you are not certain what is the origin-usually after steroids all symptoms are gone during the usage, but after, it can make things worse, especially when virus or fungal infection is suspected.
