[The population incidence of warts].

[Article in Russian]


Viral warts incidence and morbidity structure were analyzed basing on the records of consultations (a total of 30,518 subjects) and the results of purposeful check-ups of various patient populations (altogether 20,020 subjects) in the town of Tomsk. The incidence of viral warts was found to be much higher (12.94%) than it is acknowledged (2.82%). Age- and to a certain measure sex-specific predisposition to viral warts are known to exist. The condition is the most incident in subjects aged 20-29; in women the peak of the incidence is recorded in younger age than in men. Students rank first in the social structure of patients suffering from this condition, schoolchildren, second. Warts of the soles occur two times more frequently than vulgar warts. Children and adolescents more often have vulgar warts, particularly boys. Vulgar warts are the most incident in children aged 10-14, sole warts in those aged 20-29.
