Abstract

Natural regression should not be advocated as a treatment option for cutaneous warts, given the infectious nature of this condition. Although there are numerous treatments for this condition reported in the literature, many trials are uncontrolled and many regimens are unsuitable for general practice. Specific treatment is influenced by age of patients, number and sites of warts and availability of treatment. This paper reviews the international literature on treatment methods, with particular emphasis on effectiveness, patient acceptability and application in family practice.
