Author and Disclosure Information


External genital warts (EGW) are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), a highly contagious sexually transmitted infection (STI). HPV infects the basal epithelium via microabrasions and tissue disruption of genital skin/mucosa or oral mucosa. EGW are only one manifestation of HPV infection; HPV DNA may also integrate into the host genome and may lead to malignant transformation.
