Common variable immunodeficiency is the most common severe primary immunodeficiency. Most common variable immunodeficiency patients have progressive hypogammaglobulinemia involving all immunoglobulin classes, poor or absent antibody responses, and recurrent bacterial infections, usually of the sino-respiratory tract. Some may present with complicated cutaneous infections like furunculosis (J Allergy Clin Immunol; 109: 581) or recurrent cutaneous warts. Here, we report the case of an 18-year-old male diagnosed with common variable immunodeficiency who had extensive cutaneous warts that resolved within 2 months of starting weekly infusions of subcutaneous immunoglobulin.
