Abstract

BRANDT, Hebert Roberto Clivati et al. Treatment of human papillomavirus in childhood with imiquimod 5% cream. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2010, vol.85, n.4, pp.549-553. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962010000400020.

In children, lesions caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) constitute a significant epidemiological issue and a therapeutic dilemma, particularly in the case of anogenital warts. The treatment of anogenital warts in children is a challenge, since standard treatments are generally painful and require the patient to be anesthetized. Imiquimod, a topical immune response modifier, constitutes an alternative therapeutic agent for the treatment of HPV. The present report describes four cases in which treatment with topically applied imiquimod 5% cream was implemented with successful results.
