Shivakumar, V.; Okade, Rajendra & Rajkumar, V.

Abstract

Background: In the treatment of multiple warts, there is no single treatment that is 100% effective and different modalities of treatment need to be combined.
Aim:
To evaluate the efficacy of homologous autoimplantation therapy in the treatment of multiple warts.
Methods: A total of 60 patients of multiple verruca vulgaris and palmo-plantar warts were enrolled. Homologous autoimplantation was done after harvesting full-depth wart tissue. Patients were followed upto a period of 6 months. Resolution of warts within a period of 3 months after procedure was considered successful.
Results: All the 60 patients were available for follow-up. A total of 28 patients of verruca vulgaris (70%) and 16 patients of palmo-plantar warts (80%) showed resolution of warts within 3 months, accounting for a total clearance rate of 73.3%. Majority of the responders (91%) showed resolution of warts within 2 months.
Conclusion: This study demonstrates that homologous autoimplantation could be an effective, simple modality of treatment for multiple warts.
