Abstract

Contact immunotherapy is an increasingly used, effective means of treating cutaneous viral warts. Dinitrochlorobenzene, diphencyprone, and squaric acid dibutylester are the most frequently used modalities, showing slight variances in adverse effect profiles and efficacy. All of these agents serve as safe treatment modalities when administered according to the guidelines recommended herein. We review the value of contact immunotherapy in the treatment of cutaneous viral warts.
