Introduction: Warts are benign tumours that commonly involve skin and other epithelial tissues. There is no single treatment modality that is 100% effective. In multiple warts, especially on face, palms, and soles destructive procedure are inappropriate and impractical. Homologous autoimplantation is a simple technique, which helps in inducing cell mediated response, causing clearance of warts. Aims and objectives: To evaluate the effect of homologous autoimplantation therapy in treatment of multiple warts. To study the untoward effects of this treatment. Material and methods: A total of 49 patients of viral warts were included in study. Homologous autoimplantation of wart was done and regular follow up was done to see the result. Results: Out of 49 patients, in 24 patients there was good response, 14 showed moderate response, 5 showed poor response and in 6 patients there was no response. Conclusion: Homologous autoimplantation is an easy, minimally invasive technique which clears multiple, recurrent and recalcitrant warts.
