Spanish term or phrase: condilomas acuminados
Hola a todos:
Estoy traduciendo un protocolo de ginecología del español al inglés y tengo problemas con la traducción del término "condilomaS acuminadoS".
He encontrado que lo que más se utiliza en inglés es el término latino "condylomata acuminata". También tengo la opción en inglés de "acuminate condylomas", pero se usa mucho menos. El problema es que este término viene acompañado de "condilomas papulares" y "condilomas maculares", cuyas traducciones aparecen en todos lados en inglés y no en latín. Es por esto por lo que no quiero utilizar el término en latín para "condiloma acuminado" y los otros dos traducirlos al inglés (creo que hay que ser coherente). ¿Traducirían en este caso "condiloma acuminado" al inglés aunque su frecuencia de uso sea mucho menor que el término en latín?

Muchas gracias y perdón por la parrafada.
Un saludo

condylomata acuminata
Explanation:
This is the version used in all clinical documentation I've ever come across (and I edit a newsletter called HPV Today which deals with these and other HPV-related lesions). Papular and macular are concerned with the shape of the condylomata.

PS Depending on the target audience, you could also refer to them as genital warts.

Have a look at this reference (under "microscopic features") and you'll see I was pretty much right.

Why can't you use "genital warts" ? This is what they use in the Genitourinary Clinic at St Mary's Hospital, Portsmouth?

Note to reference poster
Asker: Hello, because this specific part of the source text refers to this kind of wart as condyloma. In other parts of the text the author uses "genital wart"
