Abstract: Cutaneous viral warts are caused by infection of the epidermis with human papilloma virus (HPV). It is also possible for viral warts to occur on mucosal surfaces namely genital, oral and laryngeal mucosa, but these will not be discussed in this article. The appearance of the lesions is influenced by the HPV type (strain), as well as by environmental and host factors. Viral warts are typically self-limiting in nature, however their resolution can be speeded up by active intervention.
