Abstract

Possible modes of transmission of the human papilloma virus (HPV) in children include perinatal transmission, sexual transmission, or extragenital contact. Conventional treatment options with chemical and physical destruction methods can be difficult and painful and often require general anesthesia. Imiquimod is a topically active immunomodulatory agent that has been shown to successfully treat pediatric anogenital warts. We report on a case of extensive anogenital warts in a 18-month-old girl who was successfully treated with topical 5% imiquimod cream.
