Plantar warts are caused by the human papillomavirus. These warts are fairly common and contagious. They may be painful and are usually found over bony prominences. Single lesions are endophytic and hyperkeratotic. A mother-daughter wart is similar to a single lesion except for a small vesicular satellite lesion. Mosaic warts are often painless, closely grouped, and may coalesce. Diagnosis is usually made clinically. There are many therapeutic options. Treatment is complicated by the fact that many of these lesions will resorb spontaneously within 2 years. These patients may require prolonged treatment in resistant cases and should be referred.3,5
