We present a case of massive condylomata in a pregnant patient complicated by brittle diabetes and mental health issues where a large exophytic mass covered the vulvae and precluded vaginal delivery. Surgical resection was performed following patient request and disclosure of suicidal ideation. The patient received a caesarean section at 36 weeks due to concern over potential perineal scaring and diabetic issues. There
was no evidence of recurrence.
