The word condyloma comes from the Greek kondylos, meaning a "knuckle" or "a knob". The same Greek root gave rise to the word condyle, referring to a rounded articular surface of a bone; such as, for example, the lateral condyle of the tibia (the rounded bony prominence on the outside of the ankle).
2. Inflammation of the epicondyle or of the tissues adjoining the epicondyle of the humerus (bone of the brachium, or upper part of the arm or fore limb).
