PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to describe the technique of radical excision of multifocal anal intraepithelial neoplasia and discuss controversial issues surrounding the management of this condition. METHOD: We describe the case of a 31-year-old female with previous vulval warts, vulval squamous carcinoma, and recent immunosuppression who had widespread anal intraepithelial neoplasia excised, and the resulting defect was split-skin grafted, including the anal canal. RESULTS: Excision and split-skin grafting was successful in removing the disease and left a satisfactory cosmetic and functional result. CONCLUSION: Diffuse, high-grade, anal intraepithelial neoplasia is rare. Excision of these lesions remains controversial but may be the best option.
