Abstract:   (106 Views)
Context: Warts are benign cutaneous and mocusal growths caused by human papillomavirus. Warts are the most common skin diseases seen by pediatric dermatologists. Although, warts often are self -limited especially in children, however, the lesions which not resolved spontaneously by repeated treatment are referred to as recalcitrant warts.
Evidence acquisition: Electronic databases such as Google Scholar, PubMed and Scopus were searched and a review was conducted for articles published in English on pediatric warts by focusing on recalcitrant warts during 2000-2018.
Results: If warts are asymptomatic and being in a location that causes no cosmetic or other problems, observation is the ideal management course. Most parents and children prefer treatment for their warts. There are three modalities of treatment included: medical, surgical and immunotherapy.
Conclusions: Treatment of warts is a therapeutic challenge which depends on patient’s age and the type of warts. Despite treatment according to evidence based guidelines, a significant proportion of warts are failed to respond. This condition is an unsolved problem in practice. The management for treating of these lesions is remained unclear and a wide range of second line of treatments is developed.
