What we found to be of significance in this article were the findings that some patients treated with duct tape experienced resolution of other untreated warts following elimination of the treated wart.1 The authors hypothesized that the resolution of untreated warts could be secondary to the stimulation of the host's immune response. The significance of the development of a host's immune response to effectuate wart regression is well documented in the literature.
