Penile warts in infants are rare and condylomata acuminata at the urethral meatus are rarer. This is a first report of a 2.5 years infant with a condyloma acuminatum at the urethral meatus of penis that was found positive for HPV 6, by PCR analysis. Infant’s mother presented warts on her hands, suggesting a possible transmission of virus from mother to infant via extragenital contact, without excluding a vertical transmission.
