Background. Treatment of anogenital warts is difficult in that the disease spectrum is wide. Moreover, varying degrees of improvement are obtained.
Objective. To study the treatment of persistent anogenital warts by pulsed dye laser.
Methods. Pulsed dye laser was used with the following settings: spot size 7 mm, pulse duration 1500 μsec, and fluence 7.5 J/cm2. Two different wavelengths were used: 585 and 595 nm.
Results. Lesions healed completely using both wavelengths after one treatment.
Conclusion. Pulsed dye laser has been found to be safe, effective, satisfactory, and less traumatic compared to other options for treatment of perianal warts in children.
