Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Wart is an infection caused by human papilloma virus, which can involve both skin and mucosa. It can present with symptomatic or asymptomatic latent infection. Symptomatic lesion presents commonly as papules with verrucous surface. Treatment is mainly required for cosmetic purpose. AIM OF THE STUDY: To compare the different treatment modalities of anogenital wart among patient attending STD clinic. OBJECTIVES: 1. Comparison of the therapeutic efficacy of different treatment modalities of anogenital wart. 2. To study adverse effect and recurrence rate of treatment modalities. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Screening of HPV infection among patients who attended the Institute of venereology, RGGGH, Chennai, during the period between 2014-2017, was conducted by means of history taking and clinical examination to find out anogenital warts. Three types of treatment modalities were taken for this study. They were 20% podophyllin in 10% tincture benzoin solution, 5% imiquimod cream and liquid nitrogen. RESULTS: The distribution of response to treatment is not similar in all study groups. The distribution of treatment at the end of 3 months is almost similar in all study groups. The distribution of side effect is not similar in all study groups. The mean duration of treatment response is highest in Group-III (imiquimod) followed by Group-I (liquid nitrogen) and the lowest in Group-II (podophyllin). CONCLUSION: Among all the study groups efficacy is almost equal in Group-I and Group-II. Both had 100% complete clearance rates followed by Group-III with 85% of complete clearance rate.
