Abstract

The treatment of periungual warts is difficult. Classical treatment modalities used in the treatment of cutaneous warts are not preferred because the lesions in the periungual area are not easily accessible and can cause permanent nail destruction. Intralesional bleomycin treatment is quite effective and safe in periungual warts. The bleopuncture method used to instead of intralesional bleomycin which is difficult to apply due to pain is also effective, safe and a comfortable method. In this case report, a case of resistant periungual wart, which was treated quickly and effectively with bleopuncture method, is presented.
