Abstract: Warts are common benign epithelial hyperplasia due to infection with human papilloma viruses (HPV). Papilloma viruses are double stranded DNA viruses of the PAPOVA class with host and tissue specificity. They infect squamous epithelia of skin and mucous membrane causing cell proliferation. Currently, more than 150 types of HPV have been identified. Certain HPV types tend to infect skin at particular anatomical sites; however, warts of any HPV type may occur at any site. Here we present a case of 23yearold male with complaints of multiple warts on dorsum of right foot. Afterdetailed case taking and repertorization, Medorrhinum was given as similimum. Patient reported complete disappearance of warts within a period of 3 months. The aim of article is to show the scope of homoeopathy in the management of warts.
