Imiquimod in clinical practice

Libby Edwards, MD
From the Southeast Vulvar Clinic. 


Numerous clinical trials have shown topical imiquimod (Aldara) to be effective and safe for the treatment of anogenital warts. In addition, the recurrence rate appears to be lower than those reported for many standard therapies of genital warts. Clinical experience with this medication since its availability 2 years ago has shown that it is important in the therapy of this disease. However, it is not the ideal treatment in all cases, and the advantages and disadvantages in individual patients must be considered. In addition, the antiviral and antiproliferative effects of imiquimod, as well as early reports, indicate that this medication may prove useful in the treatment of other skin diseases, including some nongenital warts and molluscum contagiosum.
