Abstract

Genital warts are caused by several strains of Human Papilloma Viruses (HPVs). Although asymptomatic in most cases, they can be psychologically and physically distressing for patients. Recently, Intralesional immunotherapy by different antigens like Bacille Calmette–Guerin vaccine, candida antigen, and measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine has shown promising efficacy in the treatment of warts. Here we report two cases in Omani males who presented to the dermatology clinic at Barka Poly clinic with recalcitrant genital warts that resolved completely with intralesional injection of MMR vaccine.
