AIDS and planter warts
Aug 16, 2007

Are plantar warts related to being infected with AIDS?

Response from Dr. Conway

Plantar warts and warts of any kind can become much worse with more advanced AIDS. The part of the immune system that helps control warts is exactly that part of the immune system that is selectively weakened as HIV infection progresses to AIDS.

Dr. Conway, i have a question, i could not search any post on this.
