Abstract

Genital warts are manifestations of a common viral sexually transmitted disease (STD) that are often diagnosed and treated with a variety of clinical specialties. Unlike for other STDs, there is a general lack of a well- established treatment algorithm for the management of external genital warts. This, coupled with a wide variety of treatments and clinical settings, makes the development of a simple algorithm virtually impossible. In this review what is known and not known about current treatments and case management will be discussed.
