Core tip: Common warts on immunosuppressive patients are characterized by multiple lesions, long duration and hard to treat. Current treatment method includes laser therapy, cryotherapy, topical salicylic acid, etc. Scar formation and high recurrence rate are the most common disadvantages of these treatments. In this case report, we provide a noninvasive treatment method called hyperthermia treatment. Using this method we succeed to cure multiple warts on a nephrotic syndrome patient who received immunosuppressive treatment for years without any scar formation. And we did not see recurrence 3 mo after the treatment.
