Verrucae plantaris (plantar warts) are common cutaneous lesions of the plantar aspect of the foot that are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). Ubiquitous in our environment, asymptomatic infection with HPV occurs frequently, with most infections controlled or cleared by cellular and humoral immune responses. However, certain populations have been observed to manifest plantar warts at higher rates compared with the general population, placing them at increased risk for wart-induced pain and complications...

The differential diagnosis of heel pain is extensive, but a mechanical etiology is the most common. The specific anatomic location of the pain can help guide diagnosis. The most common diagnosis is plantar fasciitis, which leads to medial plantar heel pain, especially with the first weight-bearing steps after rest. Other causes of plantar heel pain include calcaneal stress fractures (progressively worsening pain after an increase in activity or change to a harder walking surface), nerve entrapment or neuroma (pain accompanied by burning, tingling, or numbness), heel pad syndrome (deep, bruise-like pain in the middle of the heel), and plantar warts...

INTRODUCTION: Cutaneous warts are common skin lesions, caused by human papillomavirus. For years, liquid nitrogen is the cryogen of choice for wart treatment. Alternatively, several cryogenic devices for home treatment are commercially available. The present trial assessed efficacy and safety of a novel nitrous oxide-based cryogenic device for home use (EndWarts Freeze® in Europe, Compound W® Nitro-Freeze in the USA). METHODS: This investigator-blinded, controlled, randomized study compared the nitrous oxide device (test product) with a dimethylether propane-based product (Wartner®; comparator 1)...

AIM: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the treatment of plantar skin lesions by excision and rotation skin flap closure with reference to patient satisfaction; patient reported outcomes and complication rates. METHOD: A retrospective audit of 54 consecutive patients who had undergone plantar lesion excision with rotation skin flap between May 2011 and November 2015 under the care of experienced consultant podiatric surgeons. A total of 36 patients were included in this study, 16 were lost to follow up, 2 patients were excluded due to non-related pathology...

Plantar warts, caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV), are a commonly encountered condition presenting in clinic. In adults, an array of various therapies exists, frequently with modest results particularly with plantar lesions. Microwaves have had limited uses for medical purposes. Recently a new portable microwave device has been approved for the treatment of skin lesions. Prior research has demonstrated immuno-stimulatory effects against HPV infection. We report the application of a novel portable medical microwave unit to treat a long-standing plantar wart which had failed to respond to other treatment modalities...

Infectious diseases have a profound impact on our health and many studies suggest that host genetics play a major role in the pathogenesis of most of them. We perform 23 genome-wide association studies for common infections and infection-associated procedures, including chickenpox, shingles, cold sores, mononucleosis, mumps, hepatitis B, plantar warts, positive tuberculosis test results, strep throat, scarlet fever, pneumonia, bacterial meningitis, yeast infections, urinary tract infections, tonsillectomy, childhood ear infections, myringotomy, measles, hepatitis A, rheumatic fever, common colds, rubella and chronic sinus infection, in over 200,000 individuals of European ancestry...

BACKGROUND: Cutaneous warts have a cure rate after therapy of no more than approximately 50%. Recently, we developed and validated a standard assessment tool for warts (CWARTS) based on phenotypical characteristics. OBJECTIVES: To assess whether patient and morphological wart characteristics predict the HPV type in the specific wart and whether these characteristics as well as the HPV type predict a favourable treatment response. METHODS: Photographs were used to score 9 morphological wart characteristics using the newly developed CWARTS tool...

Paring is useful for both diagnosis and treatment of plantar warts. Paring techniques generally involve scalpel blades, abrasive tools, or curettes. However, these tools do not permit the use of an "awl-like" carving technique of the wart afforded by using a punch biopsy tool. We have found this technique to be associated with greater precision and safety, as well as potentially increased efficacy compared to traditional methods.

BACKGROUND: Diabetic foot ulcers are a common complication in the advanced stages of diabetes mellitus. Certain lesions may be refractory to usual treatments with prolonged healing. In these cases, differential diagnoses to classical ulcers should be considered. Although plantar warts are a common and easy-to-diagnose finding in the general population, diagnosis can be challenging in people with diabetic foot ulcers, as they mimic hyperkeratosis in these people. CASE REPORT: We report seven cases of people with diabetic foot ulcers and verrucae vulgares mimicking treatment-refractory hyperkeratosis, presenting to our centre between 2014 and 2016...

Soheir Ghonemy
BACKGROUND: Treatment for recalcitrant plantar warts remains a continuing challenge as the options for treatment have differing levels of success. long-pulsed Nd:YAG laser is considered a good treatment modality in resistant plantar warts. On the other hand, high cure rates have been reported with a topical proprietary formulation consisting of 1% cantharidin, 5% podophyllotoxin, 30% salicylic acid. AIM: To compare the efficacy of 1% cantharidin, 20% podophylline resin and 30% salicylic acid (CPS) versus long-pulsed Nd:YAG laser in the treatment of recalcitrant plantar warts...

Context • Viral plantar warts, or verruca plantaris, are a benign epithelial tumor caused by various strains of the human papilloma virus (HPV). Current treatments have had mixed degrees of success, are moderately invasive, and are often incompatible with participation in sports. Objective • The study intended to examine the benefits of treating plantar warts with a topical, botanical blend that has had clinical success treating herpes simplex virus cold sores. Methods • A synergistic botanical blend was applied topically...

REVIEW
Neha Kumar, Christine B Warren
Photodynamic therapy (PDT), using topical aminolevulinic acid (ALA), has been used for years to treat a variety of dermatologic conditions, including actinic keratosis, superficial basal cell carcinoma, and in situ squamous cell carcinoma. While there is a wide range of neoplastic and non-neoplastic skin diseases for which ALA-PDT is used in adults, there is a knowledge gap when it comes to its use in children. This review highlights what is currently known regarding the use and efficacy of this therapy in the pediatric population...

BACKGROUND: Warts are the most common clinical manifestation of the human papilloma-virus infection in the skin and mucous membranes. In spite of the various therapeutic modalities for nongenital skin warts, there is still no single method to be used as an approved treatment. In this study, we compared the efficacy of immunotherapy and cryotherapy on wart lesions. METHODS: Sixty patients with verruca vulgaris and plantar warts were randomly divided into two groups...
