Abstract

The use of 5-aminolevulinc acid photodynamic therapy in the treatment of recalcitrant verrucae vulgaris and in the treatment of recalcitrant molluscum contagiosum has been shown to substantially reduce the lesion count and severity. Clinical research published in the medical literature and personal experience of both of the authors support the use of 5-aminolevulinc acid photodynamic therapy in appropriate individuals with recalcitrant verrucae vulgaris and molluscum contagiosum lesions. This article reviews the medical literature and identifies the various lasers and lights sources used to treat these conditions.
