Numerous HPV warts in a young boy with Netherton syndrome: A case report.

Netherton’s syndrome (NS) is a rare disorder characterized by dermatological signs, such as ichthyosis, and a complex immunological dysfunction. Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is associated with carcinomas on non-mucosal sites in immunodeficient individuals. We report a case of a 15-year-old boy with itchy, red skin, and fragile scalp and eyebrow hairs. HPV warts were diagnosed through the clinical findings and laboratory analyses. Leukocytosis with mild eosinophilia and normal hemoglobin was confirmed using blood test analyses. After diagnosis, we presented some treatment options.
