Case Rep Dermatol 2021 Jan-Apr;13(1):36-41. Epub 2021 Jan 25.

Department of Dermatology, Derma Clinics, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Imiquimod cream is an immunomodulatory agent that has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for use in the treatment of anogenital warts (condylomata acuminata) due to its local immune effects in activating Toll-like receptors 7 and 8 on antigen-presenting cells, resulting in reduction of the viral load of human papillomavirus with subsequent wart regression. After its application, some side effects are commonly reported, including erythema, edema, scaling, erosion, and ulceration. While pigmentary changes, including vitiligo-like depigmentation, have been mentioned as a possible side effect, they have rarely been reported in the literature. Read More

Department of Dermatology and Venereology, Sir Run Run Shaw Hospital, School of Medicine, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China.

Human papillomavirus type 11 (HPV11) is one of the main causes of condyloma acuminatum, a widespread sexually transmitted disease. During infection of its primary target cell, keratinocytes, it is likely to encounter the autophagy pathway, which is an intracellular maintenance process that is also able to target invading pathogens. It is currently unknown whether HPV11 is targeted by autophagy or whether it is able to escape autophagy-mediated killing. Read More
