Objectives: This study aimed to evaluate the demographic features, clinical presentations, sexual aspects, and possible risk factors of genital warts (GWs) among patients treated at Outpatient Clinics of the Dermatology, Venereology, and Andrology Department, Faculty of Medicine, Sohag University, Egypt. Patients and Methods: In a prospective cross-sectional clinical study, it conducted on 85 patients with clinically evident GWs. All patients were subjected to clinical assessments included a detailed medical history and full general and local examinations. All patients were investigated to exclude other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Results: This study included 85 patients with clinically evident GWs; 65 (76.5%) were male and 20 (23.5%) were female. Of male patients, 44.5% were university graduate, 73.8% were urban, 90.8% were smoker, 64.6% had a single sexual partner, 75.4% preferred intravaginal sex, 100% were circumcised, 80% had occasional history of condom use, and 95.4% had a history of illegal sexual relation. Of female patients, 40% were university graduate, 55% were suburban, 100% were nonsmoker, 45% had a single sexual partner, 65% preferred intravaginal sex, 100% were circumcised, 50% had an occasional history of partner use of condom, and 35% had a history of illegal sexual relation. All patients had neither other STDs nor warts in other body sites. Conclusion: Like all STDs , GWs have important effects on the health of society and quality of life. So, awareness of clinical presentations, sexual aspects, and possible risk factors of GWs leads to the use of effective protection measures and decrease the cost of treatment.
