Treatment response of genital warts in Human Immune Deficiency Virus(HIV) infected women

Zukile Ngayo, Dr HC Maise


        Genital warts are a common gynaecological problem more in HIV infected women compared to those who are not infected

        Several studies done in Europe have shown that clearance of genital warts is difficult in HIV infected patients worse in those with high viral load

       HAART lowers viral load and has been shown to improve clearance to as high as 90%

       HAART has also been shown to lower the rate of genital warts recurrence
