Warts are benign viral papillomas, characterized by the growth of layers of skin with an uneven and rough surface.
They affect both sexes, at any age and are widespread throughout the world. They are caused by human papillomaviruses (HPV) type 1-4, 26-29, 38, 41 and others.
Clinically, they can be single or multiple, and can be located in different parts of the body:
- on hands, palms, feet (chicken thorn)
- under the nail plate
- face, eyelids
- on the neck
- on the mucous membrane of the mouth and the back of the tongue
Laser treatment of flat warts:
They are caused by HPV type 3. They are more common in adolescents and children, spread quickly to the face, neck and limbs. They are flat, round or oval in shape, slightly raised, with a smooth surface. Their color is pale brown, pale pink or yellowish. Rarely, self-healing may occur after months or years, and more often their number increases progressively.
Laser removal of acute warts (Condylomata acuminate)
They are an infection most often caused by HPV types 6 and 11, less commonly 16, 18, 42, occurring mainly in adulthood, on the genital mucosa and sometimes in the area of the oral mucosa. Predisposing factors are inflammatory processes in the genital area, sexual intercourse and others.
