In the May 2010 issue of the Archives, Venugopal and Murrell1 described a 31-year-old man who showed rapid clearance of cutaneous warts after having received 3 doses of a recombinant quadrivalent human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination. We herein describe a severely immunosuppressed woman who experienced a similarly substantial regression of widespread cutaneous warts following vaccination with a quadrivalent HPV-6, -11, -16, and -18 vaccine.
