Abstract

External genital warts are a significant health problem particularly for young adults. This review summarizes the current literature on epidemiology, transmission, diagnosis, and treatment. Efficacy of all treatments is less than optimal, and multiple therapies may be necessary for complete resolution. Data on a new patient-applied therapy are presented. New vaccine therapy for prevention of infection should reduce the incidence of disease.
