The HPV only infects the superficial structures of the skin, and thus does not invade any other body parts. Generally, patients complain of the painful growth of the bottom of their foot which often times looks like a callus. Despite this extensive and diverse list of possible treatment modalities, there is little consensus as to a gold standard treatment.
The warts typically occur on areas of the foot that are under direct pressure, such as the ball and heel of the foot.


It is not usually, to see dark specs within the "callus." These are often confused with a possible retained foreign material such as a thorn of a piece of glass. Perez is board certified by the American Board of Foot & Ankle Surgery and a Fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons. However, they can also be seen under and around toenails, as these structures tend to be under pressure from shoe gear.
It is estimated that up to 12% of the world's population and 20% of school aged children are infected with this type of HPV wart.


We are concerned with a very small subset of the HPV family, specifically, HPV 1, 3, 27, 29 and 57 are known to cause warts on the foot.
Most people who are infected with the virus will have spontaneous resolution within 6 months.
