Hi, Recurrence rates exceed 50% after 1 year and have been attributed to the following:
Long incubation period of HPV
Location of virus in superficial skin layers away from lymphatics
Persistence of virus in surrounding skin, hair follicles, or sites not adequately reached by intervention used.
Missed or deep lesions.
Subclinical lesions.
An underlying immunosuppression.
Surgical Excision has highest success rate and lowest recurrence rate.
