Title
Prognostic value of HPV genotyping in cutaneous warts​
Author
Abstract
Cutaneous warts are common skin lesions caused by infection with the human papillomavirus (HPV). Although benign in nature they can often be painful and cause impaired quality of life due to social stigma or inhibition of the natural function. For this reason, many patients do seek treatment, but these treatments often remain unsatisfactory and cause unwanted adverse events. Currently, a reliable approach to deciding on optimal treatment is not available. Previous studies suggest that HPV type can influence response to treatment and natural course in cutaneous warts. For this purpose, the pertinence of HPV genotyping as a triage method for the clinical management of cutaneous warts is explored.
