Summary of "Local hyperthermia cleared multifarious viral warts in a patient with Cushing's syndrome."

A female Cushing's syndrome patient had been suffering from extensive viral warts for months. She was diagnosed with flat warts, common warts and plantar warts. The plantar warts on her right foot were initially treated using local hyperthermia at 44°C for 30 minutes according to a defined protocol, followed by treatment targeting a common wart on her left thumb. In response to hyperthermia, the flat warts on her eyelid dissipated within 12 weeks, and when combined with a one week administration of imiquimod, the common warts and plantar warts completely disappeared within 8 weeks. There were no signs of recurrence and during this treatment her Cushing's syndrome was alleviated. This pioneer trial suggests that local hyperthermia may serve as an effective mean for treating multiple cutaneous warts under the conditions of a systemic immuno-compromised disease.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Benign epidermal proliferations or tumors; some are viral in origin.

The induction of local hyperthermia by either short radio waves or high-frequency sound waves.

The use of focused short radio waves to produce local hyperthermia in an injured person or diseased body area.

The use of focused, high-frequency sound waves to produce local hyperthermia in certain diseased or injured parts of the body or to destroy the diseased tissue.

Proteins associated with the inner surface of the lipid bilayer of the viral envelope. These proteins have been implicated in control of viral transcription and may possibly serve as the "glue" that binds the nucleocapsid to the appropriate membrane site during viral budding from the host cell.
