Abstract

A 51-year-old man with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in his third remission received autologous PBSCT. He had had a couple of pat warts on his right hand since admission, which showed no progression during conventional dose chemotherapy. On day 15 of PBSCT, however, the warts began to develop and spread to his forehead, face, neck and arms over several days. The diagnosis of flat warts was made and human papilloma virus type 3 was detected by PCR analysis. Severe immunosuppression associated with PBSCT may have caused this rapid and disseminated growth of flat warts.
