Abstract

Verruca vulgaris is a common cutaneous manifestation of Human Papillomavirus (HPV) infection that presents as hyperkeratotic, cauliflower-like papules with central black petechiae. These lesions may be resistant to conventional therapies, posing a therapeutic challenge and prolong significant morbidity for the patient. This case report demonstrates an immediate and robust response of recalcitrant warts to intralesional bleomycin injection paired with cryotherapy. J Drugs Dermatol. 2022;21(2):195-196. doi:10.36849/JDD.6424.
