Genital warts have a big psychological impact on the affected individuals, as the treatment requires time and multiple sessions at a time. They can also increase the chances of acquiring other sexually transmitted diseases. Various treatment options are available including the topical application of imiquimod, podophyllin, trichloroacetic acid application, cryotherapy, and radiofrequency cautery. However, all of these require multiple sessions, and chances of recurrences are high. Some of them also have multiple local side effects as burning, irritation, erythema, and swelling. Overall genital warts represent a frustrating challenge for both patients and physicians. Intralesional immunotherapy has shown promising efficacy in the treatment of warts including the following: Bacille Calmette–Guerin vaccine, candida antigen, Mw vaccine, and measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine. We report the two cases of genital warts, who had an excellent response with intralesional MMR vaccine.
