Genital Warts (STD Briefs)The Correct Answer is D

Genital warts are due to the human papilloma virus, particularly types 6, 11, 16 and 18. Diflucan is an oral treatment for infection with candida. There is debate about the role of Caesarean section for patients with active herpes, but not for patients with warts. Podophyllin in spirit is the standard treatment, but can be toxic in pregnancy. Failing this, the warts can be frozen or treated with diathermy.
Cervical cancer is believed to be due to the wart virus, so patients with proven infection, be it clinical warts or evidence of wart infection on cytology, are at increased risk. I usually advise annual smears, but some would regard this as "over the top".
