The Effects of Bleopuncture Technique in the Treatment of Warts

Abstract

BACKGROUND: The warts may promptly return despite being treated with a myriad of destructive methods. The most successful treatment has been the intralesional injection of bleomycin sulfate, but unplessant side effects caused by the difficulty of infiltrating only the wart tissue have limited its use.
OBJECTIVE
Our purpose was to determine the effects of bleopunciure technique in the treatment of warts.
METHODS
We performed a multiple puncture technique using a 25 gauge hypodermic needle to introduce bleomycin hydrochloricle into warts.
RESULTS
This technique resulted in elimination of 91.4% of a random series on 105 warts after a single treatment. Recurrence and side effects were not observed during a 1 year follow-up period.
CONCLUSION
We experienced a superior technique for introducing Heomycin into the wart, which has resulted in the cure of a signficant number of warts following a sing treatment.
