Abstract

The number of identifiable types of human papillomavirus (HPV), based on deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) sequence, has steadily increased in recent years. Although at one time verruca vulgaris was considered a benign reactive proliferation, current evidence submits that this is not the case; some types of HPV are malignant.
