Age-Specific Pattern of Anogenital Wart in Men Who Have Sex with Men

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

We examined the proportion of anogenital warts in men who have sex with men attending a sexual health center. Anal warts were most common in younger men who have sex with men (5.8% for age <21 years) and became less common with age (2.8% in age >50 years), but penile warts occurred at approximately the same proportion (1.5%) over all age groups.
