Background: Various methods for treatment of warts have been practiced; however, in areas such as the beard area or in patients having multiple lesions, recurrence can be a problem. In such situations, autoimplantation therapy can be a useful adjunct. Aim: The aim of the study was to evaluate the efficacy of autoimplantation of viral wart as a treatment option for extensive and recalcitrant warts. Materials and Methods: Twenty-five consecutive patients who presented with recalcitrant warts in a private clinic in Pune and at MGM Medical College in Aurangabad were included in the study. They were followed up for a period of 1 year and evaluated for clearance of lesions. Results: There was complete clearance in 22 patients, 3 patients failed to show any clinical improvement. Conclusion: Autoimplantation of wart is a promising therapeutic option in extensive and recalcitrant warts where most of the treatment options failed to show satisfactory results. However, there are no predictive parameters for the expected outcome.
