AbstractNineteen cases of warts of various types (flat 3, veffuca vulgaris 8, planter warts.3 and genital warts 5) were treated with applications of Vinca rosea cream twice a day 1-2 hours after application of an ointment containing equal parts of 5% salicylic acid and 0.0.5% tretinoin (1:1). The response after 6 weeks of treatment when compared with a control group of 14 cases of various types of warts applying only 5% saliylic acid and 0.05% tretinoin (1:1) was found to be better in clearing the warts and also preventing recurrences.
